Governors Forum, ACF Condemn Jos Killings






(AFRICAN EXAMINER) – The Nigeria Governors’ Forum (NGF) has condemned the tragic incident that led to the loss of 23 travellers at Rukuba Road in Jos North Local Government Area of Plateau.

The forum flayed the attacks in a statement issued by its Head, Media and Public Affairs, Mr Abdulrazaque Bello-Barkindo, in Abuja on Sunday.

While describing it as barbaric and senseless,  it said that the killing had all the colourations of several others like in which locals in particular parts of Nigeria had become inhospitable and unwelcoming to other Nigerians living in or passing through their domains.

“These dastardly actions of Nigeria’s once peaceful locals which have resulted in unwarranted and needless deaths diminish us all as a people and pull our country down to the deepest recesses of the absence of civilization.

Similarly, the Arewa Consultative Forum (ACF) has condemned the violence in Jos, Plateau state.

The National Publicity Secretary Arewa of ACF, Mr Emmanuel Yawe, expressed the concerns of the body in a statement in Kaduna on Sunday.



While urging the people of Plateau to remain calm, ACF said: ”Religious and traditional leaders must impress on their people to exercise restraint and not take the laws in their hands”.

It noted that no religion – neither Christiaanity nor Islam – allows its followers to spill innocent blood.

The forum also called on security agencies to take their responsibilities seriously.

Recall that on Saturday in Jos North LGA violence erupted in which many were killed and several people sustained multiple injuries.

The Special Task Force, Operation Safe Haven (OPSH)  in Plateau, said it has since arrested 12 suspects in connection to the bloody violence.
