Plateau: Attacked communities back Lalong’s call against land grabbing
Communities recently attacked in Barkin Ladi, Riyom, Jos North and Jos South Local Governments of Plateau State, where suspected herders killed over 200 persons, have thrown their weight behind Governor Simon Lalong’s call against land grabbing.
They vowed not to abandon their ancestral lands for the attackers who are hell bent on displacing them.Addressing the press in Jos, APC leaders of the affected communities led by Architect Pam Dung Gyang said: “Violence has never been an acceptable way of conflict resolution and it contravenes all known human conventions. Therefore, we call on relevant government agencies to ensure that those who are culpable in disturbing the peace of the land are made to face the maximum punitive measures prescribed by extant laws, so as to send a strong warning to anyone who may be wickedly misled to toe this path of savagery in future.”
