The All Progressives Congress,APC, on Wednesday said it commiserates with the government and people of Plateau State over Saturday’s killings in Barkin-Ladi and Riyom LGAs of the state. The ruling party in its statement via their official Twitter handle, said ‘nothing can justify such descent to barbarism, bestiality and cruelty to a fellow man as witnessed with the gruesome killings.’
APC, therefore enjoined its leaders to demonstrate true leadership by appealing to those affected not to take the laws into their hands. It further stated called on security agencies “to spare no efforts in ensuring the arrest and prosecution of the perpetrators and in stemming the occurrence of such violence in all parts of the country.”
Reacting to their statement, some Nigerian Twitter users expressed their disappointed in the way the APC led government has treated human lives under its administration. While some called the party and its leaders failures, other noted that condolences mean nothing without action.
