A member of the Nigeria’s House of Representatives Representing Jos South/Jos East Federal Constituency Dachung Bagos has expressed sadness over the killing of seven of his constituents by suspected Fulani bandits.
A number of suspected Fulani bandits had attacked Danda Chugwi village of Jos South Local Government of Plateau State on Sunday night, killing seven people and injuring two others.
Bagos, who is the Deputy Chairman House Committee on Anti-Corruption, attended the mass burial of the seven victims at Danda Village on Monday, describing the act as “inhumane”.
He maintained that the cold-blooded killing of his constituents by bandits is “callous”.
“This incident has raised concerns over the readiness of security agencies to tackle once and for all the gorilla style of killing which has been incessant in my constituency and Plateau State, intelligence reports have it that the attackers had sent signal before now and no action was taken on the part of the security agencies to curtail it, this is sad”.
The Lawmaker while sympathising with the families of those who lost their loved ones, said; “I am angry and enraged by the daily killing within and around my constituency.
“I want to state emphatically, that I will continue to talk about these callous attitudes of known criminals amongst us until they are all gotten rid of finally, everybody has the right to defend himself, I want to urge my constituents to defend themselves enough is enough of this barbaric and dastardly killings”.
“As the representatives of my people in Jos South/Jos East Federal Constituency in the National Assembly, I have signed for the impeachment of Mr President because we need someone that will address the issues of insecurity, my people are being killed on daily bases; this is condemnable and unacceptable”
The lawmakers, however, called on his constituents to be more vigilant and defend themselves when criminals come to attack.
