The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has declared seven days of mourning for victims of incessant killings across the country.

Kola Ologbondiyan, PDP spokesman, who announced this on Wednesday, said the party’s flags in all its offices and formations would be flown at half-mast during the period.

The party expressed particular concern over Saturday attack in Plateau state, which left about 100 persons dead.

Following the attack by suspected herdsmen, the state government had imposed curfew on three affected local government areas, and had also promised to fish our the attackers.

“The national working committee (NWC) of the PDP has declared a seven-day mourning for the victims of the gruesome killings of innocent Nigerians by marauders and bandits in Plateau state and other parts of the country,” Ologbondiyan said via a statement.

“We urge the people of Plateau state to exercise their rights as global citizens, work with other public-spirited Nigerians and groups and take President Muhammadu Buhari and his government to the International Criminal Court for acting helpless in the face of continuous mass killings.”

The Plateau incident is just one of the numerous other attacks that have left hundreds dead this year alone.

President Muhammadu Buhari has vowed to bring the killers to book.
