Nigeria has been thrown into mourning after the recent plateau killings by alleged herdsmen that left 86 persons dead in Barkin Ladi, Plateau State, on Saturday. The victims includes women and children who were hacked to death while they were supposedly returning from a burial ceremony.
Nigerians Twitter have taken social media to talk about the insecurity in the country and to demand for justice for the lives lost.
Between the darkness of Plateau State and the Brookings Report on poverty, the last couple of days should be the biggest jolt for every single Nigerian.
People are gone forever due to the failure of our government and security system. And some people want us to keep quiet. The killings in Plateau, Benue, Taraba, Birnin Gwari n Zamfara must stop. May their gentle souls continue to Rest in Peace
What happened in Plateau is tragic & unacceptable. It’s the responsibility of the government (FG & state) to protect lives & property of all Nigerians. No excuses! It’s not enough to issue statements. The govt should bring the culprits/sponsors to justice & compensate the victims, Plateau killings is just one of many cases.
Miyetti Allah took responsibility for the massacre in Agatu, nobody was arrested, they took responsibility for the killings in different parts of Benue State, nobody has been arrested. They have taken responsibility again for the massacre in plateau.
Are the attacks in Plateau and Benue states really one-sided? Are the security forces divided along ethnic and religious lines? The President, all arms of govt. and security agencies should ‘not carry their swords in vain’. Come down hard on perpetrators of evil. Plateau killings should be a wake up call for all of us #stopthekillin
URGENT NEED Please if you can donate blood for the victims in Plateau state, kindly go to Plateau State Specialist Hospital (PSSH) or Jos University Teaching Hospital (JUTH) and donate at the Blood Bank unit. This is live saving and thank you in anticipation
The massacres going on in plateau is really disheartening. Why are we devoid of the hereafter and love for one another? All the same let’s continue to pray for the lost souls #LetsStopTheKillings
Who will be held accountable for the mass murder in Plateau. Mr president, we are watching closely. After miyetti allah claimed responsibility for the attack, not a single arrest has been made. In a few weeks we will forget about this.
Miyetti Allah should show us the 300 dead cows that made them murder hundreds of human as revenge in Plateau.
These killings keep repeating itself.
The prospective future we keep destroying, the ideas we send to the early graves and the possibilities we might never experience.
