The All Progressives Congress has demanded the arrest and prosecution of perpetrators of Saturday’s massacre in two local government areas of Plateau State.

The party made the demand in a statement signed by its National Publicity Secretary, Bolaji Abdullahi, in Abuja, on Wednesday.

According to the statement, there was nothing that could possibly justify the “descent into barbarism and cruelty” as was witnessed during the incident.

The statement partly reads, “We also once again call 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.

“APC commiserates with the government and people of Plateau State over Saturday’s gruesome killings in Barkin-Ladi and Riyom local government areas of the state.

“Nothing can justify such descent to barbarism, bestiality and cruelty to a fellow man as witnessed with the gruesome killings.

“While we grieve over the dead and commiserate with families and friends who have lost loved ones, we appeal to religious and community leaders to demonstrate true leadership, even in the face of this terrible challenge, by appealing to those affected not to take the laws into their own hands and avoid utterances and actions that can provoke reprisal.

“We are confident that President Muhammadu Buhari’s prompt visit to Plateau State will help in providing some succour to the affected and reassure everyone of Mr. President’s commitments to tackling the security situation in the country.”
