The Speaker of the House of Representatives, Aminu Tambuwal, on Sunday condemned the killing of innocent people in Maseh Village in Plateau.
In a statement issued by his Special Adviser on Media and Public Affairs, Imam Imam, Tambuwal urged security agencies to rise to the challenge by fishing out the perpetrators of the violence.
He said that the incessant killings in the state and other parts of the country must stop.
Tambuwal described one of the victims, Sen. Gyang Dantong, as a man of peace whose death was regrettable.
He urged security agencies to provide adequate protection for citizens of the country at all times.
Tambuwal said the National Assembly would continue to liaise with other arms of government and security agencies to find lasting solution to the spate of violence bedeviling the nation.
The speaker said that criminal groups were hiding under different guises to cause mayhem in the country, urging Nigerians to remain resolute in their quest for lasting peace.
He said that Nigeria was greater than any group, expressing optimism that ``this dark period in our history would soon become a thing of the past''.
It will be recalled that Danton and James Gyang of the Plateau State House of Assembly were allegedly killed in an attack at Maseh Village in Riyom Local Council of Plateau.
