Abuja - The Senate President, David Mark, has sympathised with the families of those who died at the recruitment test conducted by the Nigeria Immigration Service (NIS).
He described their death as tragic. He also condemned the killings in three villages of Southern Kaduna at the weekend.
Mark described the re-emergence of killings in Kaduna as shocking.
He said those behind the killings were senseless and reiterated that there was no alternative to dialogue.
“The killing of innocent Nigerians in this attack is barbaric. It is saddening and worrisome that in this present age, some set of people will engage in mass slaying of their fellow countrymen as an expression of their grievances.”
“This must be stopped at all costs. Government will not fold its hands and watch the murder of innocent Nigerians in the hands of faceless and wicked people.”
“The Federal Government will continue to mobilise our military in combat till this insurgency is swept out of our nation.”
On the death of some job seekers, Mark said it was very painful and prayed that God grants the families the fortitude to bear the irreparable loss.
