While condemning the killing of over 35 people on Wednesday morning by bandits in Jos North Local Government Area of Plateau State, the Executive Secretary (ES), Nigeria Christians Pilgrims Commission (NCPC), Reverend Yakubu Pam, has condemned the killings, while vowing that Plateau will not be allowed to be turned into a graveyard.
This was expressed in a statement signed by his SA Media/Public Relations, Pam Ayuba, dated Wednesday August 25, 2021.
“I condemn in totality the gruesome killings of over 35 Plateau citizens on 25th August 2021 in midnight attack where houses and churches were torched including a primary school in Kunga of Zangam, a village just behind Naraguta village.
“This scenario certainly is not what we inherited as our cherished heritage. Plateau cannot be turned into a graveyard while we are still alive,” he said
He charged the government to 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.
“The government must realize 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 I consider it a deliberate attempt to annihilate a 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!,” he said
He therefore, called 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.
“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.
“No human being is superior to the other. We all have the same measure and quantity of blood as humans created by God. we must accept this and live together as one people,” he added.
The NCPC Boss commiserated with the Plateau Governor, the people, and more importantly, the families of those victims affected in this horrible carnage.
“I am bummed out!” he concluded.
