Killings: Northern governors sue for peace
The Northern States Governors Forum (NSGF) decried the weekend’s killings in the north, saying the situation where aggrieved individuals take laws into their hands will not advance the course of peace.
Chairman of the forum and Governor of Niger State, Dr Mu’azu Babangida Aliyu said the senseless killing of innocent citizens from Thursday last week through the weekend in various parts of the North negated all efforts to restore peace to the region.
A statement signed by Aliyu’s chief press secretary, Danladi Ndayebo, said the forum expressed serious concern at the renewed attacks on citizens, beginning from a fire incident caused by bomb blast at Gamboru Market in Borno state on Thursday, as well as the killing of 10 people at Kogom Village in Plateau State on the same day.
It said it is alarmed by the killing of five young men playing card game in Gombe town on Friday and the killing of another five and burning of houses when Hausas and Jikuns reportedly engaged themselves in a bloody fight in Wukari, Taraba State on Saturday.
The forum said it is saddened by the news on Sunday of the death of five persons in Zangon Kataf Local Government of Kaduna State which took a violent pattern like the ones before it.
