By Dirisu Yakubu

ABUJA—Former Kaduna State governor and chieftain of Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Senator Ahmed Makarfi, has condoled with the government and people of Benue, Taraba and Rivers states over the killing of innocent Nigerians last week.


He also called for the immediate arrest and prosecution of the masterminds of the killings, even as he urged President Muhammadu Buhari’s government to beef up security across the country to ensure the protection of lives and properties.

Senator Makarfi, who returned to the country yesterday, expressed shock at the killings witnessed in some parts of the country, adding that under no circumstances should such acts be allowed to recur.

He added: “I urge well-meaning Nigerians to help in securing every nook and cranny of this country. We have no other country than Nigeria to call our own.

“Regardless of class or status, we should report criminals to security agents to secure our country and its people.”
