Senate President David Mark yesterday described the endless bombings of churches as a threat to national unity.
He urged the Federal Government and other stakeholders to, as a matter of urgency, explore all necessary measures to halt the carnage.
A statement by his media adviser Kola Ologbondiyan, said Mark was reacting to yesterday’s bombing of churches in Wusasa, Zaria and Kaduna in Kaduna State.
Urging victims of the attacks not to engage in reprisals, Mark said: “Resorting to vengeance will demean your faith as the Lord has said vengeance is His. More so, reprisal attacks can only help the course of your attackers.
“I believe they want to ignite a religious war and threaten our national unity.
“Those who have turned places of worship as targets of bombings should know that they are fighting God and the Lord will surely at an appropriate time give His own judgment.”
Mark urged those behind the attacks to have a rethink and accept the dialogue proposed by the Federal Government.
He said: “No matter the amount of anger in a man’s mind, killing another man cannot be a remedy”.
Mark urged the governments at all levels as well as security operatives to rise up to the challenge and forestall needless and further destruction of lives and property.
