Security agencies know those attacking, killing in Plateau – Governor

Governor Caleb Mutfwang of Plateau State has claimed that security agencies know those who attacked and recently killed hundreds of residents in the state late last year.

Mr Mutfwang who stated this on Friday while featuring on Channel TV, described the incident as pure acts of terrorism.

“What I can tell you is the killings in Plateau and the attacks in recent times are pure acts of terrorism,” he said.

“I believe that the sponsors of the terrorists, the financiers of the terrorists, and those who arm the terrorists are known.

“And the security agencies know them or they have the capacity to know them. And that is why we are insisting that the security agencies must do their work, which is to protect lives and properties.”

Late last year, gunmen stormed 21 Christian villages in the Bokkos, Barkin Ladi, and Mangu areas of the state on Christmas Eve and killed about 200 residents, an incident that sparked public outcry.
