THISDAY - - FAIRGROUND -

The Per­form­ing Mu­si­cians As­so­ci­a­tion of Nige­ria (PMAN) has urged Pres­i­dent 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 civil­i­sa­tion.”

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.”
