Benue Killings Unacceptable- Says Mark



senate_president__david_mark 600A worried President of the Senate, David Mark has lamented that the terrorists have degenerated to the level of beasts and becoming insane.
Reacting to the latest attacks in parts of Benue state which claimed hundreds of lives and properties, Senator Mark wondered how some Nigerians have suddenly become so wicked and cruel to one another.
Senator stated: “I cannot understand why People have resorted to killing each other at will without the slightest provocation. This is not part of us. This is highly inhuman and unacceptable”.
He reminded Nigerians of the time-tested philosophy of Africans being their brothers’ keeper at all times, saying “we are still one people created by the same God. Neither religion nor politics or ethnicity should put asunder to our cherished peace and unity.”
Senator Mark therefore tasked security operatives to collaborate with one another in order to work out a synergy for result – oriented approach towards ending the killings.
He sympathized with the government and people of Benue state over the incessant attacks and called for proactive approach in order to avoid a repeat occurrence.
Specifically, Senator Mark requested the National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA) to help its Benue State counterpart to provide relief materials to the victims now taking refuge in various camps across the state.
He pleaded with his Benue state kinsmen to maintain peace and order as both the state and federal governments have resolved to halt the trend “so that we can all be at peace and make progress.”
