Plateau state, Senator representing the Central Zone, Diket Plang has canvassed for the presence of more soldiers in the affected communities
Senator Plang made the call in Jos, saying that the presence of more soldiers from Operation Safe Haven on the instruction of the Chief of Defense Staff will go a long way towards tackling the unfortunate situation.
The lawmaker, who condemned the lingering killings also enjoined other sister security agencies, such as the police, the Department of the State Security Service DSS, and others, to team up with the men of OPSH to arrest the pathetic situation in his constituency and other part of the state
He equally called on the Service Chiefs to visit Mangu and other troubled parts of Plateau State to boost the morale of their men on the ground and instill confidence in the locals that they are safe and that the government cares for them.
While urging the people to shun any act that might further
escalate the situation and cooperate with security men on the ground to put an end to the ugly trend, Senator Plang stressed the need for the citizens to forgive one another and embrace peace to enable the government at all levels to actualize their dreams of development and progress for the people.
