Benue Killings: Sen. Mark Seeks Prosecution of Perpetrators

Former Senate President David Mark has urged security operatives to arrest and prosecute perpetrators of the Benue attacks.

A statement yesterday by his media aide, Paul Mumeh, condemned the ‘unabating invasion’ that has led to the death of hundreds of Benue indigenes, and destruction of property worth millions of naira.

Mark described the situation as “intolerable”.

“Our people can no longer go freely to their farms and markets to pursue their legitimate businesses. Even those who stay at home for fear of being attacked are not free.

“I’m yet to be told what the offence of the man or woman, living in his/her own land, is. The killings of our people have continued yet, nobody has been arrested for this heinous crime,” he lamented.

Senator Mark urged security operatives to do all that is needed to halt the massacre, noting that one way to achieve that is for all security formations to work as a team.

He, however, cautioned the people against reprisals, saying it will only aggravate the situation.
