According to the statement, Rev Pam “Bemoaned the continued mayhem meted out on innocent citizens of the state” calling on the security agencies to intensify efforts at arresting those perpetrators of these heinous acts”.
“Plateau needs support from both the federal government and international donor agencies to deal with incessant crises that had persisted in the state without relief.
“We need support to stop this carnage. We must try to get it right by fixing any vexation amongst our people. We can not continue this way. It has to stop!
“Killings of any nature are despised by God. Nobody ever fought His battles? We must shun tribal and religious differences to allow peace a chance.
“I call on Plateau people to show resilience and not be deterred by a revenge mission but to allow God to contend with all those contending with us at this trying moment.
“We should support the government to fight these intruders and round them up for the nation to sleep in peace”! He said
