The Chairman of the Senate Committee on Foreign Loans, Senator Shehu Sani, has called for the opening of a graveyard in the Three Arms Zone in Abuja.
The Three Arms Zone houses the Executive, Legislative and Judiciary arms of government in the central area of Abuja.
It is where the Presidential Villa, where the President and the Vice President have their offices and residences; the National Assembly, comprising the Senate and House of Assembly; and the Judiciary, with the Supreme Court and National Judicial Council, are located.
Sani, in a tweet, said the establishment of a graveyard in the zone for the burial of the victims of mindless killings will drive home the pains it brings with it.
He said: “We need a graveyard in the three arm zones of Abuja so that victims of the mindless killings in the country can be buried close to the seat of power.
“Then the Executive, Legislators and the Judiciary can feel the pains of the helpless widows and orphans we failed to protect.”
Sani spoke against the backdrop of weekend’s killings in Plateau State, where over 200 persons were said to have been killed by herdsmen.
According to the Miyetti Allah Cattle Breeders of Association of Nigeria, the Berom people of Plateau State only got a retaliatory attack after killing 300 cows belonging to the Fulani herdsmen.
