The statement detailed the horrific violence, stating:

“I find it expedient at this time to intimate the world on the unfortunate happenings in my constituency, Mangu/Bokkos Federal Constituency, Plateau state, in the last two days, where over 100 persons, most of them women and children, have been massacred and butchered in cold blood by terrorists during an overnight unprovoked attack, and their houses burnt down, including food stuffs, food barns, and seedlings.”

“These killings are one among many in the constituency, where over 200 persons have been killed in the last four months before this one,” Marren added.

He commended the efforts of the security officers but stressed that the government’s current efforts are insufficient, urging the President to intervene immediately. He also called on the National Emergency Management Authority and other organisations to provide relief materials for the wounded survivors.
