The Inspector-General of Police (IG), Kayode Egbetokun, said the police had commenced a special operation to tackle security challenges currently confronting Plateau.
He disclosed this when he paid a condolence visit to the Plateau State governor, Caleb Mutfwang on Friday in Jos.
Egbetokun said he had directed the Deputy Inspector-General (DIG) in charge of Zone 4 to relocate to Plateau.
“We have commenced a special operation in this state and I have directed the DIG in charge of Zone 4 to relocate to Plateau.
“We are committed to ending this violence in Plateau. We call on communities not to be collaborators in this evil act.
“Citizens should rather cooperate with the police and other security agencies so that we can deal with these criminals once and for all,” he said
Responding, Governor Mutfwang commended the police and other security agencies for their efforts towards restoring a lasting peace to the state.
He, however, called on the security agencies to fish out the perpetrators so that they would be made to face the law, insisting that such move would serve as deterrent to others.
“I want to thank President Bola Tinubu for sending the delegation led by Vice President Kashim Shettima to the state.
“It is a clear demonstration of the political will to deal with the situation once and for all.
“I also commend the security chiefs for demonstrating the commitment to end the killings.
“But we urge the security agencies to arrest and prosecute those behind this heinous act, that’s the only way the people will know that justice is served,” he said.
The governor expressed his readiness to work with the police and other security agencies to stem the tide of insecurity in the state. (NAN)
