State Police will end incessant killings in Nigeria – Pwajok

Member representing Jos South/Jos East Federal Constituency of Plateau State in the House of Representatives, Hon. Edward Gyang Pwajok (SAN), has said that only State Police can stop incessant killings in the country.
Hon. Pwajok, in a press statement issued yesterday said there is urgent need to amend the constitution and make provision for State Police before certain ethnic groups are wipe out in the country.
“I am advocating that there is a need to amend the constitution to make provision for State police and I am also calling for the total overhauling of the security architecture in the country especially in the area of intelligence gathering using traditional rulers, youths and women groups as focal persons.”
He described the attacks which engulfed parts of Plateau State on the 23rd of June as a horror film at play and challenged the security agencies to rise to their constitutional responsibility of protecting human lives and properties.
Hon. Pwajok condemned the inaction of the security agencies which led to the simultaneous attack on 11 villages of Gashish District in Barkin Ladi for a period of seven hours without any security intervention.
He decried the slow response of National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA) which saw them taking a week before providing relief efforts to victims of the attack and call for legislation mandating NEMA to providing comprehensive assistance within 12 hours whenever such incidence or otherwise occur.
Hon. Edward lamented the continuous killings in Plateau State aimed at land grabbing and ethnic cleansing which has led to the death of thousands including Senator Gyang Datong, and Hon. Gyang Fulani and calls for a forensic analysis on the corpse of those killed to ascertain the type of weapons.
According to him, if the Nigerian State is incapacitated to providing justice to victims and bringing perpetrators of the heinous crime to book, then there is need to involve the international community as the bloodletting needs to stop.
He appreciated the visit of Hon. Yakubu Dogara the Speaker of the House of Representatives, President Muhammadu Buhari, Prof. Yemi Osinbanjo and Senator Bukola Saraki to commiserate with the people of Plateau.
