Nigeria Is Being Painted Red With Blood–Dogara

Speaker of the House of Representatives, Yakubu Dogara has reacted to the various killings going on around the country, particularly in Benue and Taraba states. Dogara cried out that the country was being painted ‘red’ with blood.

In his address to lawmakers on resumption from the Christmas/New year break, the Speaker condemned the violence in Benue, Kaduna, Taraba, Zamfara, Adamawa and Rivers state.

He said; “Indeed, at no time in the recent past has the nation’s peace and unity been so vigorously and persistently challenged. This, however, is the real test for true leadership.

“Our dear country is now being painted red with the blood of the innocents on account of unremitting bedlam callously promoted by cold-hearted merchants of death.

“At these moments of intense outpouring of grief across the nation, it is important that we shun buck-passing and accept responsibility for these wanton killings without which we will never find a solution to this evil.”
