Bombing of Churches:Threat to National Unity,Says Mark
President of the Senate, Senator David Mark,has described the incessant bombings of churches as a threat to the unity of our nation. He therefore pleaded that all necessary measures be put in place to halt these carnage.
Mark, who stated this while reacting to the bombings of churches in Wusasa, Zaria and Kaduna in Kaduna State, urged the victims of the attacks not to engage in reprisals.
According to him, “resorting to vengeance will demean your faith as the Lord has said vengeance is His. More so, reprisal attacks can only help the course of your attackers. I believe they want to ignite a religious war and threaten our national unity.
“Those who have turned places of worship as targets of bombings should know that they are fighting God and the Lord will surely at an appropriate time give His own judgement”.
He urged those perpetrating these attacks to have a rethink and accept the dialogue proposed by the Federal Government , reiterating that ” no matter the amount of anger in a man’s mind , killing another man cannot be a remedy . Such action can only aggravate the situation”.
Senator Mark therefore urged governments at all levels as well as security operatives to rise up to the challenge and forestall needless and further destruction of lives and property in the land.
