Speaker of the House of Representatives, Yakubu Dogara, has condemned the killing of about 200 persons in the Church of Christ in Nations (COCIN) Regional Church Council (RCC) Rop in Barikin Ladi Local Government Area, Plateau State, by suspected armed herdsmen.

Hon Dogara said it was reprehensible that people who gathered to bury their dead would be gruesomely murdered in that manner.

“Our security agencies must rise up to the task of securing the lives of citizens of this country. The attack reportedly lasted from 1:00 p.m on Friday, and lasted till about 8:00 p.m. on Saturday. Where were the Police and other security agencies that they failed to respond to the attack?

“This further strengthens my constant call for an overhaul of the entire security apparatus of this country. It just isn’t working,” he stated.

He said that rising level of violence and gruesome killings of innocent and hapless citizens poses serious threat to Nigeria’s democracy and must be stopped.
