The Northern Christian Elders Forum has pleaded with Federal Government and the various security agencies to take serious action against perpetrators of the killings in Benue, Taraba States and Southern Kaduna.

Chairman of the Forum, Oyinehi Ejoga Inalegwu, in an issued statement in Kaduna, decried the renewed onslaught by the terrorists and urged President Muhammadu Buhari to save the citizens from the killings and destruction of valuables in different parts of the country.

The statement expressed shock that, with the security architecture in place, wanton killings of such degree are still being perpetuated without any counter from the security forces.

It also called on the security agencies to checkmate the trend and go after those terrorising, killing, maiming people and destroying properties of citizens in different parts of the country.

The Forum appealed to all Nigerians to pray for God’s intervention in bringing to an end the new wave of killings across the States, saying that the renewed killings and destruction of properties by the gunmen was so alarming.
