Governor of Plateau State, Simon Lalong, has urged citizens of the state to increase surveillance in their communities in order to end further invasions on them by gunmen.
Lalong made this known on Monday when he visited some communities invaded by gunmen in Jos South Local Government Area of the state.
The Governor’s call was enclosed in a statement released after the visit by the Director of Press and Public Affairs, Government House, Makut Macham, and named, ‘Kuru killings: Lalong warns against attacks on innocent citizens, begs communities to increase surveillance’.
The statement read in part, “Governor Lalong, who expressed disgust over the murderous incident which occurred on Sunday night in Sabon Layi Kuru, in Jos South Local Government Area and left 12 people dead and five critically injured, said these unprovoked and isolated attacks on soft targets must be stopped at all cost, as the government will never allow few criminal elements to create fear in the hearts of the citizens.
“He said irrespective of the motives behind the killings, the government is treating it as a purely criminal activity and has directed security agencies to swiftly investigate, pursue, and arrest the perpetrators who must face justice.”
