“I am very sad to hear the news of the incident in Plateau State. This is very depressing and giving the impression that the country is not safe. The problem of Boko Haram in the North-east is well known to everybody but this killing by an unknown band of assailants in Benue, Taraba, Plateau and Kaduna States is now giving another dimension to the crisis. Coming at the time we are getting ready for elections, we need to respond fast.

“If the plan is to develop some long-term measures, we also request that the President should mandate the security chiefs to put forward an immediate short-term and quick response measure which will restore confidence in the system and demonstrate to the criminals behind this killings the capacity of government to tackle the issue,” Saraki said.

In a statement signed by his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Yusuph Olaniyonu, the Senate President added that this quick action is necessary because it is important for Nigerians to have the assurance that the government is decisively responding to the current threat to lives and properties in parts of the country.

The Senate President however commiserated with the people of Barkin Ladi Local Government Area and the Government of Plateau State over the weekend attack.

He prayed for the repose of the deceased and for God to grant the injured swift recovery.
