Abuja — National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Alhaji Bamanga Tukur, Thursday, said that security agencies must bring to book those behind the massacre of forty students of the Federal Polytechnic Mubi, Adamawa State and the School of Health Technology, Mubi last Monday.

Speaking during a breakfast meeting with a delegation from Ekiti state PDP led by Kayode Adaramodu who came to commiserate with him over the wanton killings in his home state, Adamawa state, the PDP National Chairman who condemned the ugly incident, however vowed that if fished out, they must be face the full wrath of the law to serve as deterrent to others.

Tukur who noted that "enough is enough" of the killings, said, "Every Nigerian must condemn what happened. The killing of these students is unwarranted and uncalled for. What joy does the masterminds of these dastardly derive from the deaths and shedding of innocents bloods? We are parents, how would the parents of these students feel.

"You sent your children to school to study and the next thing is that his or her corpse is brought back to you. How do you expect them to feel."

"It was first the killing of members of the National Youths Service Corps, now they have graduated into going into the campus to kill the students. This must stop and the federal, state governments and the security agencies must ensure the protection of lives."
