Plateau Massacre: Mark Urges FG to Review Nigeria’s Security Architecture 

Sunday Aborisade in Abuja

A former President of the Senate, Senator David Mark, has urged the President Bola Tinubu-led administration to consider a  review of the nation’s security architecture with a view to making it more proactive and strategic towards addressing the recurring insecurity in the country.. 

Mark, in a statement by his media aide, Paul Mumeh, Tuesday said a review will identify the loopholes and devise a means to end the bloodshed .

The retired General cum politician said the Plateau incidents in which scores of citizens were needlessly massacred should be a wake up call that the security challenge needs urgent attention.

He said: “It will not be out of place to declare an emergency on security. Any  step taken to end the continued killing of citizens will be worth the trouble.”

He urged the government and security agencies to do more, saying that life has become so cheap in Nigeria today as if people have lost humanity in them. 

The former two-term Senate President implored the government to collaborate with sub-national governments in the task of ensuing peace and security in the country . 

Specifically, Mark commiserated with the government and people of Plateau State just as he suggested that residents should be alert and cooperate with security operatives  in order to prevent reoccurrence. 

He called for harmonious relationship between and among various ethnic and religious adherents in the country.

He counseled against taking any grievance to the extreme, pointing out that: “There are legitimate channels to address grievances instead of resorting to self help.”
