The Northern States Governors Forum  (NSGF) yesterday challenged security agencies to put an immediate stop  to the spate of killings of innocent Nigerians in the North.Reacting to last Thursday’s killing of  22 persons in Mavo, Wase Local Government of Plateau State, the NSGF  said that the present level of insecurity in the North is unacceptable.The forum particularly deplored the  killing of people by Boko Haram and the incessant clashes between Fulani  herdsmen and farmers.Governor Babangida Aliyu of Niger State  who doubles as the chairman of the forum lamented that the Wase incident  came soon after about 30 people were killed in a similar attack in  Riyom Local Government and 18 in Kaura Local Government Area of Kaduna  State.The forum commended the Interim  Administrator of Wase Local Government, Zakari Haruna and other  community leaders whose quick intervention averted what would have been a  crisis of huge proportion.He asked security agencies to ensure that the perpetrators are caught and brought to justice, to prevent a reoccurrence.The Governors prayed God to grant  repose to the souls of the deceased and also grant members of their  families the fortitude to bear the loss.
