The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has bemoaned the massacre of 41 Nigerians by marauders in Zamfara State.

The party wants all Nigerians to join hands and pray for the nation following the killings in Birane village, Zurmi Local Government Area of Zamfara State.

National Publicity Secretary of the PDP, Kola Ologbondiyan, said on Saturday in Abuja that the All Progressives Congress (APC)-controlled Federal Government should take decisive steps to end the incessant killings in various parts of the country.

“In the last two months, hundreds of helpless citizens have been murdered by bandits in various parts of the country.

“Hardly have tears dried over the gruesome killings in Benue, Taraba, Kaduna, Nasarawa and other states when marauders hit Zamfara, a state known for peace, killing 41 citizens in cold blood.

“Nigerians now live defenceless and in perpetual fear; our people are fast losing confidence in our institutions.

“As we speak, citizens are now sourcing their own security as APC-controlled Federal Government daily manifest crass indifference to the protection of our people,’’ Ologbondiyan alleged.

He said that the PDP stood with all citizens across the nation and share in their pains at this critical time.
