“I am saddened by this unabating carnage. The people of Benue State are accommodating and law-abiding but it seems this gesture has been misconstrued to be cowardice.
“Our people are known for their bravery. We are not cowards. Something must be done to stop this carnage. Enough is enough,” he fired.
Senator Mark added that “the situation has continued because no serious effort has been made to bring the perpetrators and their sponsors to book.”
Speaking further, he appealed to clerics and worshippers to remain undaunted by recent events but be strengthened in their faith in the Almighty God to defeat the killers.
Mark prayed God to give the bereaved families and the people of Benue State the fortitude to bear the irreparable loss of their kinsmen as he reminded them to be security conscious.
