With deep sorrow I wish to commiserate with our people of the Kulben community in Kombun District of Mangu. It is sorrowful to learn of the cutting down of of over a dozen youth on the 9th of January, 2020, youth still in their prime
This is unacceptable. An attack on one is an attack on all of us on the Plateau. I call on all citizens with information that can lead to the arrest of these criminals to cooperate with security agencies.
I also call on state security agencies and government to without delay fish out these murderous herdsmen without delay.They are not spirits and do not have wings.They are traceable. They should be apprehended without delay along with all those who aided and abetted their dastardly acts. They should be made to face the full wrath of the law.
While commiserating with the community and indeed Plateau state, I wish to state that the security of lives and welfare is the primary responsibility of Government.We cannot fold our arms and watch our people being massacred in their ancestral lands from Jos, Barkin Ladi, Bokkos, Gindiri, to Kulben and many other communities.
Government must rise up and work with our communities to activate security strategies that can secure our people in their homes and places of work.We also call on Government to ameliorate the pains of the families left behind by our departed brothers in ensuring their children are supported to complete their studies to university level.
May the souls of our brothers rest In Peace and May God comfort, their families, the Mwughavul nation , Plateau state and indeed Nigeria.
