Yari spoke when he led a delegation of the Nigeria Governors Forum (NGF) to Jos to commiserate with Governor Simon Lalong of Plateau state on the recent murder of 86 people in parts of the state by herdsmen. The killings occurred in Barkin-Ladi, Riyom, Jos south local government areas of the state on Sunday, June 24.
The governors stressed the need for an immediate end to the killings lest the killers turn on the rulers in the course of time. Yari said: “We want to come together as a family to fight this menace because the killers are everywhere. How can we watch these evil people killing our people?“We encourage Mr. President that whoever is found wanton in these killings should be brought to book. “In my state, I said I will step down as chief security officer because the situation was so tight for me over the killings and incessant attacks on my people. “We must do something as leaders now; if not, the killers will soon come after us the leaders of the people.
“We encourage you as governor not to lose focus. Plateau state has been enjoying relative peace over the years under your administration, but all of a sudden these killings took place.
