uhari Media Organisation (BMO)has disclosed that the attack of 11 villages in Plateau State and the death of dozens of people is the handiwork of heartless and desperate politicians who are opposed to the government of the All Progressive Congress (APC).
The organisation made this known through its chairman Mr Austin Braimo and Secretary Mr Cassidy Madueke in a press statement.
The organisation is of the view that the opposition party wanted to overshadow the success recently recorded during the last National Conference of the Party.
According to the statement, opposition People’s Democratic Party (PDP) instigated the “harvest of death in order to truncate the achievement of the APC and cast dark imagery on the season of goodwill of President Buhari’s political party.”
The statement added that carnage and brigandage was timed to meet the period that APC Delegates were returning home in Northern Nigeria through Plateau State; where they were waylaid and murdered in cold blood.
“This was done to tarnish the reputation of the President and cast the image of APC in bad light, just for the desperate opposition to gain some political advantage.
“It was also gathered that illegal road blocks were set up by the hired assassins to carry out their nefarious and dastardly hatchet act of man’s inhumanity to man
Almost 90 people were cut down in their prime near Jos, Plateau Capital,” it said.
“The APC today is laden with heavy hearts by the mass killing of innocent breadwinners, women and children, under the guise of herdsmen versus farmers’ unrest.
BMO is appealing to Nigerians to show love to Mr. President and show avowed resistance to the unpatriotic people who are working hard to pull the President and his party down.
“The opposition PDP might have achieved its sadistic media objectives of casting pall on the APC and Federal Government, but doing that on a field soaked with human blood is regrettable and unpardonable.
No amount of calculated distractions or ill-will would prevent President Buhari from fulfilling his electoral promises of security, unity, equity and development to Nigerians,’’ it said.
While commiserating with the families of the departed, the statement revealed that the organisation prayed for the repose of the souls of these martyrs, and quick recovery to the maimed and injured.
