He explained that the groups used violent methods to address perceived differences, while condemning the increasing rates of attacks on communities by anonymous perpetrators.

” There was something about the anonymity that made the murders on the Plateau sinister” he said.

“What is more sinister is that warnings of impending attacks are unheeded by security agencies, coupled with the apparent unwillingness of the political leadership to arrest perpetrators.”

He added that the lackluster attitude of political leaders to nip the violence in the bud should be looked into.

According to him, if the accounts of witnesses are to be believed, what stands out is the act of collusion and conspiracy in the bloodletting.
