Governors elected on the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) have condemned the killing of three policemen and a civilian as well as a commercial motorcyclist.

While the killings of the policemen and civilian happened in Taraba state, that of the motorcyclist took place in Abia.

Soldiers were involved in all the killings.

In a statement on Monday, Seriake Dickson, chairman of the PDP Governors’ Forum, described the incidents as “unfortunate, sad, tragic, wicked, malicious, unprofessional and totally unacceptable” to the people of the country.

He said it is sad that soldiers whose job is to protect citizens could turn their back on those they are paid to protect.

“We wish to reiterate that the killings are unnecessary. It is sad that a security personnel, who is paid and maintained with tax-payers’ money, could turn around to kill the person he was paid to protect,” he said.

Dickson called on the federal government to redress the situation immediately as it portrayed “signs of inefficiency and irresponsibility”.

He urged the government to compensate the families of the victims and provide justice.

“We implore the Federal Government to adequately compensate the families of victims and ensure justice is served on the culprits,” he said.

Meanwhile, the Nigerian army has directed its troops on internal security duty to travel on mufti in order to avoid any form of clash with policemen, following the deaths of their colleagues.
