Category: , , ,

A member of the House of Representatives, Hon. Dayo Bush-Alebiosu, has called on security agencies in the country to ensure that the perpetrators of the recent killings in Jos, the Plateau State capital, are made to face the full wrath of the law.
Bush-Alebiosu, who represents Kosofe Federal Constituency in Lagos, said it was high time security apparatus of the state rose to the occasionn and bring those who perpetrated the act to face the wrath of the law. Bush-Alebiosu, who was reacting to the recent killings in Dogo-Na-Hawa, Ratsat and Jeji villages in Foron district, Jos South Local Government Area, Plateau State, said the mayhem should be condemned in its entireties.
Bush-Alebiosu noted that unless those behind the dastardly act are nabbed and made to face the law, they won't stop at nothing in continuing with the endless mass killings of innocent souls. He pointed out that the latest killing was is the height of man's inhumanity to man as innocent children and women who even in an extreme war situation are spared, were massacred and maimed under primitive notions.
"We can't go on like this. Nigeria belongs to all of us and the situation where retaliatory attacks and vengeance missions are carried out must be rejected in its totality and the onus rests on our security agents to ensure that such attacks in the future are nipped in the bud through efficient intelligence monitoring and gathering.
"These recurring crises are fallouts of arrest and the parade of alleged suspects who are ultimately set free at the end of the day by the security agencies. The suspects must not only be tried, those who conspired to kill innocent and defenceless children and women must be tried and made to face the consequences of their dastardly actions.
Unless this is done, the Federal Government would be seen as paying lip service to the issue of security of lives of Nigerians whom they swore to protect under the country's constitution," Bush-Alebiosu said. The lawmaker also called on Nigerians to remain peaceful and law abiding, since violence only begets further violence, while also sympathising with those who lost relatives and friends in these attacks.
