Former Nigerian senator and renowned human rights activist, Shehu Sani has expressed profound condemnation of the recent Plateau massacre, describing it as “one of the most cruel and evil acts of inhumanity” he has ever witnessed.

Sani conveyed his sentiments through his official X handle, emphasising the need for a collective response to the horrific incident.

In a statement posted online, Sani addressed the disturbing scenes captured in videos depicting the aftermath of the massacre in Plateau.

Sani articulated, “I watched the video of the outcome of the Massacre in Plateau State. This is one of the most cruel and evil act of inhumanity I’ve ever seen.
