President of the Senate, David Mark, Friday condemned the retaliatory attack on the Potiskum cattle market, Yobe State, by unknown gunmen during which dozens of marketers lost their lives and property, just as he tasked security operatives to bring the perpetrators of the dastardly act to book.
Mark said the Potiskum attack was “callous, heinous and shameful”.
He said: “The attack was a declaration of war against harmless citizens. It was callous, heinous and shameful.”
The Senate President challenged security operatives to further strengthen the nation’s security apparatus to meet the demands of recent security challenges facing the nation, adding however, that Nigerians should assist the security operatives by making information available to them.
“What we are experiencing presently is very strange to us, strange to our culture and our way of lives. We must brace up to combat this monster. Our security operatives must double their efforts and quickly contain the activities of these dreadful individuals in our midst.”
He assured of the continuous commitment of the Senate to tackle the issue of insecurity across board, stressing, “we in the National Assembly are always concerned about the safety of lives and property of all Nigerians and we shall continue to partner with every organisation, agency and individuals that can guarantee absolute security in our nation.”
