Abuja - Senate President, David Mark on Monday in Abuja appealed against reprisal attacks in the wake of attacks on churches by members of the Boko Haram sect.
Making the appeal when he spoke with State House correspondents after a closed door meeting with President Goodluck Jonathan, Mark stressed that vengeance belonged to God.
"I am sure that you all listened to the various appeals by everybody.
"Vengeance is not ours; we must leave vengeance to God; continue to appeal to the people who are behind it to reason and put this off because it not in the interest of this country.’’
Angry youths reportedly embarked on reprisals in Kaduna and Zaria following attacks on churches in the cities on Sunday.
The attacks on the churches left scores of people killed or wounded.
Mark said he was on a routine visit to the president and refuted a rumour making the round that there was love lost between the legislative and the executive arms of government.
"We have got very cordial relationship,’’ he said.
