The Executive Secretary of the Nigerian Christian Pilgrims Commission,NCPC, Rev Yakubu Pam has condemned the gruesome killings of over 35 Plateau citizens in a midnight attack where houses and churches were burnt including a primary school at kunga of Zangam a village behind Naraguta village in Jos North LGA of Plateau state on 25th August 2021.
In a signed statement by his Special Adviser on Media and publicity, Ayuba Pam, Rev Pam expressed regrets over the incident saying Plateau can not be turned into a graveyard while the people are still alive.
He further added that the government must do all within its powers to fish out those behind the killings and ensure proper justice is done to address the in-balance in the security of each tribe and religion.
Rev Pam noted that the government must realize that every citizen has a right to live and must, as an imperative, be treated with fairness.
“I dare say in very strong terms the life of every tribe and kindred is equal before the eyes of God and there’s no blue, white, or black blood.
“All human blood runs in the same vein and is red.
“What is happening on the Plateau is a deliberate attempt to annihilate the people and we must stop paying lip service to gratify the whims and caprices of sponsors of bloodletting, not in Plateau or anywhere at all.
“I call on the government to be more proactive in securing the lives of its citizens and apprehend the known culprits, serve them with justice and restore hope to the people”he added.
According to the ES, the act of willful killing rising daily in Plateau state and elsewhere in Nigeria must stop and it should be condemned by all and not be left as if it’s a concern of those reduced as second-class citizens.
He also commiserated with Governor Simon Along, the people and more importantly, families of the victims affected in the horrible carnage.ReplyForward
