The Governor of Plateau State, Caleb Mutfwang has charged security agents to go after those who sponsored the violent attacks in the affected communities.

Mutfwang condemned the outbreak of communal hostilities that resulted in the destruction of property and injuries among residents of villages bordering Langtang North and Mikang Local Government Areas of the state.

In the wake of the violence that erupted on Saturday and Sunday, Mutfwang extended his sympathies to the victims, denouncing the clashes as unnecessary and unacceptable.

In a statement on Monday signed by the Director of Press and Public Affairs, Gyang Bere, he emphasised that such acts undermine the government’s efforts to foster peace and unity among citizens of diverse ethnic and religious backgrounds, with the collective aim of advancing the state’s growth and prosperity.

The Governor while expressing his dismay over the conflict, Mutfwang underscored the importance of dialogue as the most civilised and effective means of conflict resolution.

He questioned the rationale behind individuals resorting to violence, taking the law into their own hands, and targeting innocent communities with arson.

“The governor called on security agencies to respond decisively and to hold the perpetrators and their sponsors accountable to the full extent of the law.

“Furthermore, Governor Mutfwang appealed to traditional, community, and religious leaders, as well as key stakeholders from the affected communities, to initiate dialogue and work towards an amicable resolution of the disputes in order to foster an atmosphere of harmonious co-existence.

“Reaffirming his administration’s dedication to establishing lasting peace throughout the state, Governor Mutfwang said he looks forward to a united, tranquil, and thriving Plateau where all citizens, regardless of faith or ethnicity, support one another in a spirit of brotherhood.”
