After another fresh attack on Mgbrazongo village in Bassa Local Government area (READ)  of Plateau State which led to the killing of 4 people including a Pastor, and destruction of properties, Governor Simon Bako Lalong has ordered security agencies to go after the killers and fish them out to face justice.

Governor Simon Lalong who expressed disgust over the barbaric actions
of the criminals who do not only have respect for the sanctity of human lives, but have been consumed by their orgy for blood letting, said it is unfortunate that they chose the period when the State is working hard to confront the corona virus pandemic to perpetrate their murderous acts.

Governor Lalong who sympathised with the victims of the killings, said “Government will not tolerate these senseless acts of murder unleashed on innocent citizens. I have directed traditional and community leaders to cooperate with security agencies in identifying these attackers who cannot be shielded as these attacks have persisted in recent weeks, a situation that is highly unacceptable to my administration”.

It will be recalled that some communities in Bassa Local Government recently came under attack where lives, properties  and Livestock were lost. They include Ancha, Hukke and Nkyiedonworo.
