The Chairman of the Northern Governors’ Forum and Governor of Gombe State, Inuwa Yahaya, has described the Christmas Eve attacks on communities within Bokkos and Barkin-Ladi Local Government Areas of Plateau State as reprehensible and heinous.
Inuwa, in a statement issued by his media aide, Isma’ila Uba Misilli, on behalf of the 19 Northern Governors, expressed his deepest condolences to the affected families, communities, as well as the government and people of Plateau State.
“It is reprehensible and disheartening to hear of the loss of over 100 lives and destruction of properties that occurred during these attacks, especially during a time when residents were preparing to celebrate the festive season.
“Such acts of violence are not only cowardly but also run counter to the spirit of unity and coexistence that our region upholds.
“We must all prioritize peace and harmonious living in our communities. Now, more than ever, we must reaffirm our commitment to peaceful coexistence and solidarity regardless of our differences.”, he said.
The NGF Chair commended Governor Caleb Mutfwang for his leadership and responsible handling of the situation following the attacks. He assured him that the Northern Governors stand united in solidarity and will work together towards lasting peace in Plateau State.
He also commended the security agencies operating in the area and urged them to redouble their efforts in safeguarding the lives and property of the people. He emphasized the urgent need for increased vigilance and swift action to ensure the safety of all citizens.
“It is imperative that those responsible for these heinous acts are swiftly apprehended and made to face the full weight of justice.”
