افتراضي Mark leads senators on condolence to Plateau and calls for end to killings.

The Senate President, David Mark has commiserated with the people of Plateau State and the immediate family of late Senator Gyang Dantong who was killed on Sunday expressing hope that his death and that of the Majority Leader of the Plateau State House of Assembly, Mr Gyang Fulani would bring an end to the protracted crisis in the state.


This is even as the state House of Assembly held and emergency session on Monday declaring that the Federal Government has failed the state for failing to stem the tide of violence in the state.


Senator Mark who led other senators on a condolence visit to the state yesterday told Governor Jonah Jang that the killing of the lawmakers and others was an indication that the crisis had reached a head.


“The deaths of Dantong and Fulani are unfortunate and regrettable and we only hope that with their death, the crisis in the state has reached its peak and must end. I have always said that we can resolve these crises through dialogue and I hope that those concerned will now embrace dialogue so that we can achieve lasting peace”, he said.


Governor Jang while thanking the Senate President and his team for the visit said his repeated cries of the existence of terrorists in the state over the years had not been taken seriously. He hoped those who felt he was raising a false alarm have now seen the truth.


The delegation later visited Senator Dantong’s residence at Rayfield to commiserate with the family.
Addressing family members which included his (Dantong’s) wife, aged mother and children, Mark said, “we have come here as colleagues of your husband to condole with you on this unfortunate incident. We know it is painful, but there is nothing any mortal can do if it is the will of God.”


On the entourage were senators Andy Ubah, Chris Ngige from Anambra State, Emmanuel Bacha from Taraba State and Victor Lar, members of the House of Representatives, Ndudi Elumelu from Delta State and Minister of Water Resources, Mrs. Serah Ochekpe.


Meanwhile, the Plateau State House of Assembly which had an emergency sitting on the killing of the majority leader expressed regret that the killings had gone on unchecked for years leading to the death of their member.


The Deputy Speaker Mr. Johnbull Shekarau who presided at the sitting summed up the feelings of member saying, “The violence in the state and in the country is getting to its climax. Is the Federal Government just there to supervise the killing of its citizens every day?


“We have resolved as a House that Mr. President owes us explanation and he should come out and tell Nigerians what is going on. We have also resolved that this House is demanding for a state police because it is obvious the federal police have failed woefully.


“We are also demanding immediate withdrawal of soldiers from the streets of Plateau and return the responsibility of securing citizens to the governor of the state who is the chief security officer of the state.”


Tension remained high in the troubled areas despite the curfew imposed by the state government. The curfew which was initially announced to last from 6pm to 7am was later moved to 12 noon apparently to forestall further trouble.
Governor Jang had in a broadcast to the people on Sunday night declared Monday and Tuesday days of mourning.
