Speaker of the House of Representatives, Abbas Tajudeen, has condemned in strong terms the wanton attacks on communities within Bokkos and Barkin-Ladi Local Government Areas of Plateau State on Christmas Eve.

Speaker Abbas, who described the attack as barbaric and heinous, said the deaths were “too many,” especially at this time.

He noted with concern the trend of attacks by gunmen, bandits and other criminals, who kill innocent Nigerians.

Abbas charged the security and intelligence agencies to forestall further loss of lives and property in Plateau and other parts of the country.
