Governor Simon Lalong of Plateau State has ordered the Commissioner of Police, Communities leaders to produce the killers of the 15 people killed during the violent attack in some communities at Bokkos, Riyom and Barkin Ladi Local Government Area of Plateau State.
Governor Lalong said: “Are those killing others spirits? I don’t think you can kill 15 human beings and claim you are spirit and there is no arrest.
”Commissioner of Police, Mr Isaac Akinmoyede, you should take the community leaders and the Ardos with you so that they can tell you those behind these killings.
“By the time you go to a cell, you will bring out those people that are doing it. If you want to give evidence, give it to the commissioner of police. We are not afraid of criminals.
“Some community leaders and Ardos have done their best but within us, there are criminals.
We must expose them no matter how high. “If you are one of them, you better take yourself to the police station.
Lalong made the above statement during a stakeholders meeting with relevant stakeholders.
The Army is her “I want those people today should not sleep in their houses. By the time they are arrested, we will solve this problem.”
In his reaction, the Commissioner of Police said: “Since I have been in the state since February, no event of this magnitude has happened. We have been investigating the incident in Mangu and then this.
“We cannot continue in this situation in the State. The security agencies have resolved that those people killing must be arrested no matter how highly placed. Peace must return to this state as we cannot continue in this situation.
“If anyone has grievances, he should come up and say it so that we can find a solution, not to take the laws into his hand and kill. We will not allow it.”
