Former Vice President, Atiku Abubakar, has condemned the killing of over 10 persons in Mangu local government of Plateau State.

Atiku made this known in a statement on his official X page.

He said the lack of anticipation and preventive measures against such crises is a matter of grave concern and called on the security agencies to bring the perpetrators to book.

“I am deeply saddened by the violence and killings in the Mangu local government of Plateau State despite the imposition of a 24-hour curfew.

“This heinous act of violence, where innocent lives are being brutally snatched away, homes set ablaze, and communities thrown into chaos, is a direct affront to the values of peace and unity that we hold dear.

“It is imperative that our security agencies exhibit a higher degree of proactiveness, particularly in light of the recurring incidents of banditry in Plateau and across various parts of the country. It is high time that our security forces rise to the occasion, ensuring the safety and well-being of our citizens.

“Even as I call for peace, I stand in solidarity with the victims and their families during this difficult time. Let us all come together to ensure that such tragedies are not repeated. “
