Plateau Killings: This Is What Osinbajo Said Will Happen To The Attackers
It was a bloodbath in
Plateau State on Sunday – suspected clashes between herders and farms left no
fewer than 86 persons dead.
To assess the situation, Vice President Yemi Osibanjo visited the state on Monday and promised grieving families that those who were behind the evil crime would not only be arrested but be made to face justice.
He also said that Special Forces have been deployed to restore peace in the state.
“The Inspector General of Police has deployed more personnel to Plateau and the Chief of Defence Staff has announced this morning that Special Forces will be deployed to Plateau.
“The Special Forces would complement the Operation Safe Haven’s effort that has been keeping peace in the state,” he said.
The vice president expressed sadness over the development.
“The president has said in his statement that whatever it takes, those that committed the heinous crime will not only be arrested but made to publicly face justice,” he said.
He said that the Federal Government was taken aback because in the last three years, Plateau had become an example of how to restore peace.
Osibanjo urged all leaders to show restraint in what they say and do.
According to him, the leaders should avoid things that would create situations that would be beyond control.
