General Manager of the Club, Pius Henwan said efforts are on to apprehend the remaining who are on the run.

Henwan explained that management will stop at nothing to ensure that all those found wanting are dealt with decisively according to the laws of the land.

 It would be recalled that some irate fans attacked centre referee, Sam Agba after the match day one of the NPFL between Plateau United and Ifeanyi Uba ended goalless on the 13th of January.

 That development forced the League Management Company LMC to banished Plateau United from the new Jos stadium to Ilorin before taking the team to Lafia after the club appealed the decision.
