The Executive Governor of Plateau State, Rt. Hon. Simon Bako Lalong has expressed sadness over the spate of insecurity in Bokkos and Bassa Local Government Areas that has culminated in the loss of lives and property recently.
In a statement issued Friday by the Special Adviser, Media and Publicity, Dan Manjang described the attacks as unfortunate and highly condemnable.
“In the light of the above therefore, he warns criminal elements to allow peace to reign on the Plateau or be ready to face the full wrath of the law.
“Governor Lalong therefore, commiserates with these communities particularly the families that have lost their loved ones and property. He assures them that government will do everything humanly possible within its mandate to secure lives and properties of its citizens, not only in these Local Government Areas but in the entire state”.
The Governor therefore directed the security agencies to take charge and stop the situation from further escalating.
Governor Simon Bako Lalong calls on all the peace loving citizens of Plateau State to be vigilant and sensitive to strange elements around them and report such to the appropriate authorities, adding that they should remain calm and go about their normal duties without any fear of intimidation and molestation.
