President Mohammadu Buhari on Thursday advised the people of Benue State against playing into the hands of their enemies.

Buhari said the continuing acts of mass killings and destruction in some parts of the country and Benue State in particular was an evil design by enemies of peace to disunite the country.

Buhari said those behind the Church attack that left 18 people dead, including two Priests, did not mean well for Nigeria and her peaceful coexistence.

Buhari lamented the situation where a brother resorts to killing his brother and “a neighbor killing a neighbor and a community attacking and killing members of another community.”

Buhari also pointed out that the revenge attacks that followed in which 11 members of the Hausa communities were killed are part of the agenda of the bandits and their sponsors to turn Nigerians against one another, adding “we must resist all temptation to fall into this laid out plan.”

“The President strongly warns citizens against playing into the hands of the agents of disunity.

The The main opposition party Peoples Democratic Party, PDP hailed the decision of the National Assembly to summon President Muhammadu Buhari before a joint sitting.

The national assembly who resolved to invite President Buhari to a joint session following the killings being perpetrated by suspected Fulani herdsmen.

In a statement by its National Publicity Secretary, Kola Ologbondiyan, the party said, “President Buhari has roundly failed in his oath of office and allegiance and must not be allowed to hide behind the service chiefs for his failures.

“Nigerians are eager to know why the Buhari administration is insensitive to their plight and why it has refused to take decisive steps to end the ceaseless killing and daily pillaging of citizens by insurgents and marauders.”

Senators, some of whom called for declaration of emergency in Benue and other states with big security challenges, said the competence of the country’s security chiefs would be discussed with Buhari.

They also resolved that the Senate’s Ad Hoc Committee on Review of Security Architecture of Nigeria should expedite action on the submission of its report on the security summit held in February.

The Deputy Majority Leader, Senator Bala Ibn Na’Allah (APC, Kebbi-South) also decried that no criminal had been arrested and tried.

“I cannot understand a situation, where killings of this nature will happen and there is no arrest. Something is definitely wrong,”

The President of the Senate, Bukola Saraki decried that no security agent had been punished for dereliction of duty, adding that the suspected killers were not being prosecuted.

The Senate President noted that the leadership of the upper chamber would meet with that of the House of Representatives to fix a date for the President’s appearance.

Senator Francis Alimikhena (APC, Edo-North) said he was tired of reading about killings without any culprit being caught.

In his submission, Senator Obinna Ogba (PDP, Ebonyi-Central), stated that the solution lied with the President, being the Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces.

“If we are going to legislate that everybody should be armed, let us pass the bill and Mr. President should assent to it,”

The Senate further notes that on the morning of Tuesday, April 24, 2018, while some Christian faithful were gathered at St. Ignatius Catholic Church in Ayar town in the Gwer East LGA for morning Mass and burial, they were ambushed by gunmen who opened fire on them, resulting in the deaths of two reverend fathers namely; Joseph Gor and Felix Tyolaha; a catechist, John Ibor; and 17 others.
