Gunmen Kill Fulani Leader In Plateau

Unknown gunmen have killed a Fulani Leader (Ardo), Mr. Adamu, of Panyam in Mangu Local Government Area of Plateau State.

Transition Implementation Committee Chairman of Mangu Local Government Area, Mr. Markus Artu, in a statement, condemned the killing of Gabdo, describing it as barbaric and an act of criminality by enemies of Plateau State who are against the peace currently being enjoyed in the state.

Artu assured the people of Mangu that the security operatives are on the trail of the perpetrators, and they would soon be arrested and made to face the wrath of the law.

He said that the people of Mangu have put the past behind them and have resolved to leave in peace with each other irrespective of tribe or religion and would not allow anyone to come between them.

He described the incident as a deliberate act by hoodlums and a clear act of criminality, which has nothing to do with tribe or religion.

Artu said: “It is perpetrated by people who are bent on throwing the council area into another round of chaos at a time when relative peace has been achieved and the people are returning to their ancestral homes due to so many efforts made by the state government to restore peace.”

He appealed for calm and called on citizens to go about their lawful activities, cautioning them against taking the laws into their hands as government was already doing everything possible arrest perpetrators and sustain the peace already being enjoyed in the state.
