The Governor of Plateau State, Caleb Murtfwang, has declared that the killings in the state must be brought to an end.
The governor said he has already cried out to President Bola Tinubu to fish out the killers and also put a permanent end to the attacks in the state.
Murtfwang, in a statement he shared on X, said he has had discussions with Tinubu, adding that there are many decisions they have taken and agreed upon.
DAILY POST recalls that on Christmas Eve over a hundred people were killed in several communities in Bokkos and Barkin Ladi LGAs of the state.
“We are grateful to the President, His Excellency, Bola Ahmed Tinubu, who was represented by the Vice President Kashim Shettima, for treating the situation in Plateau State as an urgent one,” he wrote.
“I appreciate the Vice President for stating how deeply shaken they are by the heinous killings of the people of Plateau State.
“We cannot pardon what has happened and when I spoke with His Excellency, the President, my cry to him was that the shedding of blood on the Plateau must stop.
“The recent happenings were totally uncalled for, unprovoked and barbaric. We know that these killings were not done by ghosts and the Federal Government has to fish out these perpetrators.
“I have discussed with Mr President and there are many decisions we have taken and agreed upon and I will not rest until those decisions are implemented.
“We will do everything to right the wrongs of the past and make sure that people that are in immediate need of health care will be attended to.
“I have been praying for this day that we the leaders of the Plateau will become united and I want to believe the seed of that unity has been sown.”
