Stop herdsmen killings in Nigeria, PDP tells Buhari

The National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic
Party (PDP), Prince Uche Secondus has asked
President Muhammadu Buhari to stop the
increasing attacks and killing of innocent people
in Benue State before it degenerates into a
national crisis.
Secondus in a statement on Wednesday, by his
spokesman, Ike Abonyi, said the continued
bloodletting in Benue and other parts of the
country raised a lot of concerns on the future of
the nation.
"From whichever angle you are witnessing what is
happening in this country, one thing is agreeable
that this country is sliding dangerously.
"Nigerians and the global community have
continued to watch as all the tenets of
democracy are being eroded and giving way to
dictatorial tendencies.
"I find it unexplainable that some group of
gunmen should hold a state to ransom since
January killing and maiming citizens and
destroying their houses and the security
operatives appear helpless.
“Where are the military operatives that carried out
Python and Crocodile dances in South East and
South South regions respectively lately
brandishing their might to less dangerous
citizens and who have been unable to tackle the
Benue killings.
“How can anybody expect Benue State for
instance, to contribute its own share of the $1b
security votes when the nation security
architecture is not designed to protect their
people?" Secondus queried.
