”We are here to pray against the mindless killing of innocent citizens of Plateau; to seek God’s intervention against the menace.
”We are also using this medium to call on the Federal Government to end these killings and ensure justice for the victims.
”So, we are also appealing to the federal government to do what is right by ensuring those behind these killings are apprehended and made to face the law.
”We want to see action from government and security agencies. These killings persist because there is no deterrents,”he said.
