Vice President Kashim Shettima conveyed an unwavering commitment on Wednesday that President Bola Tinubu’s administration is steadfast in ensuring justice for the victims of the appalling attacks in Bokkos Local Government Area of Plateau State.

The Vice President’s spokesperson, Stanley Nkwocha, issued a statement affirming Shettima’s assurance during his condolence visit to the affected communities in the state. Shettima expressed heartfelt condolences and sincere apologies while emphasizing the administration’s dedication to halting the ongoing violence.

“Please accept our heartfelt condolences and accept our deepest apologies; we won’t rest until you access justice and until you are safe,” Shettima assured the affected communities.

Shettima conveyed President Tinubu’s deep distress over the tragedy, emphasizing that when one community suffers, the entire nation shares the pain. He underscored the shared humanity that binds the nation, transcending differences in ethnicity, religion, geography, or politics.

Describing the incident as an indescribable nightmare and a funeral for the entire nation, Shettima acknowledged the grief faced by the bereaved families in Bokkos, Barkin-Ladi, and all over Plateau State. He pledged the Tinubu administration’s commitment to protect the people and ensure justice.

“Even though it may appear as if the government has failed them in their time of serious need, justice is the path to collective safety, unity, and healing of the nation,” Shettima asserted.

Shettima assured that the administration would utilize all available resources to bring the perpetrators to justice, preventing the recurrence of such heinous acts. He expressed solidarity with the victims, stating, “Your blood, your tears, and your cries stain our collective conscience. We are here for you; we are here, resolute in our commitment to ensuring that the perpetrators of these mindless killings face the full force of the law.”

He appealed to the people to resist sectional divisions and hatred, emphasizing the administration’s promise to curb inter-community violence.

“This violence persists due to this dangerous practice of treating criminals as ambassadors of their group, where the law is taken into our hands and protection fails. But this is not the case now. This is a promise,” Shettima assured.
