Plateau Senator condemns incessant attack on communities

Senator Dame Nora Daduut representing Plateau South Senatorial district has condemned endless attacks on some communities in Plateau State that saw to the wanton destruction of properties and farm crops.

Plateau North Senatorial district has been under attacks particularly at nights for some weeks and months by gun men suspected to be Fulani herders.

In a statement which was obtained by DAILY POST on Tuesday, the female lawmaker in the upper legislative chambers challenged security agents to immediate action, saying they should bring the situation under control at all costs.

She pointed out that communities in Bassa and Riyom Local Government Council Areas in Plateau North have been under siege by armed criminals, adding that all necessary measures be put in place to stop the deteriorating situation.

”I task security agencies to take all necessary measures to stop the deteriorating security situation in Bassa and Riyom Local Government Areas .”

She said, the attackers should be made to pay for their heinous crimes, while describing the ugly development as unfortunate even as government has been doing all it could to maintain peace in the State.

“I call on security operatives to go after those attacking innocent villagers and they should be made to pay for their heinous actions.”

Senator Dadu’ut commended Governor Simon Lalong for summoning a security meeting said that she is confident that the Lalong led Government will engage all stakeholders in addressing the matter with a view to bringing an end to the unfortunate and unacceptable attacks on innocent citizens aimed at disrupting the peace of the affected areas and the State at large.

She lauded governor Simon Lalong for his swift intervention as ensuring that the State Emergency Management Agency (SEMA) and the Peace Building Agency (PBA) immediately go to the affected communities to provide humanitarian assistance.

While sympathising with the victims, she called for calm and assured the people of governments intervention.
