Plateau State Governor, Barr. Caleb Mutfwang has again condemned in strong terms, the renewed deadly attacks that claimed over 10 lives and property in Kopnanle community in Mangu and Mandar Shar village of Bokkos Local Government Areas of the state.

The attacks which occurred on Friday night, left some members of the affected communities injured.

Governor Mufwang described the attacks as unfortunate and unacceptable, especially now that the government is diligently working to restore peace and security; and facilitate the return of displaced persons to their homes.

Governor Mutfwang in a Press Statement signed by his Director of Press and Public Affairs, Mr Gyang Bere warned perpetrators of these dastardly acts to desist forthwith as government is determined to fish them out to face justice.

While appreciating the intervention of Security Agencies in the protection of lives and property in the state, Governor Mutfwang urged them to redouble their efforts in discharging their constitutional responsibility of protecting innocent communities.

He expressed deep sympathy to the bereaved families and the affected communities and prayed for quick healing of those who sustained gunshot injuries.

The Governor called on community stakeholders across the state to activate dispute resolution mechanisms in tackling issues of disagreement and report without delay, early warning signs to Constituted authorities for prompt intervention.

He urged for vigilance and fostering of inter-community relations by residents of the state, particularly now that the rainy season is gearing up to ensure a safer and successful farming period.
