GOVERNOR LALONG DIRECTS SECURITY AGENCIES TO HALT KILLINGS IN BASSA VILLAGES

Plateau State Governor Simon Lalong has frowned at recurring killings in some villages of Bassa Local Government Council, asking security agencies to do everything possible to put a stop to the situation.

Governor Lalong while reacting to the recent killing of 4 persons following attacks on some villages in Kwall District of the Local Government, said the development was worrisome and intolerable.

The Governor who had directed the Peace Building Agency to visit the area and get to the root of the killings, said the situation must be brought under control immediately to prevent further degeneration.


He said “I want all those involved in these crimes to be arrested and made to face the full weight of the law.

While this is going on, the machinery for dialogue, reconciliation and confidence building should be vigorously pursued by the Peace Building Agency with the support of the newly constituted Inter-faith Council. We will not tolerate any act that takes us back to the dark days of violence and destruction.”

While commiserating with the families of those killed, the Governor said all citizens must be security conscious and avoid any conduct that will jeopardize peaceful coexistence of the area and the State.
