PMAN Calls On Buhari To Bring Killers To Justice
THE Performing Musicians Association of Nigeria, PMAN has called on the president of Nigeria, Mr. Muhammadu Buhari to bring to book the perpetrators of the recent Jos, Plateau State killings even as the body described the incident as ‘barbaric’.
In a statement signed by its national president, Dr. Gbenga Falope Jnr, PMAN cautioned Nigerians not to “play into the hands of these agents of disunity.”
Falope Jnr. Said: “We the National executive’s and members of the Performing Musicians Employers’ Association of Nigeria (PMAN) are greatly pained by the persistent violence and the total disregard for the sanctity of life in Nigeria by a group of hideously evil persons who have no iota of respect for humanity, decency and civilization.”
PMAN according to Falope Jnr “are greatly disturbed by the repeated acts of mass killings and destruction in various parts of the country. We as musicians are agents of peace and these killings point to a grand evil design by enemies of peace and Nigerian unity who have desperately been trying to bring our dear country to a sorry point. We ask all citizens of Nigerians to be wary and not play into the hands of these agents of disunity.”
The artistes’ president appealed to president Buhari to make security of lives and property top priority as promised on assumption of office. “We condole with all who have lost someone in the various acts of terror especially the recent Plateau killings and ask President Buhari to sit up on the issue of security by bringing to book the perpetrators of these barbarous mass murder and their clandestine sponsors.
