Youth in Plateau state have reportedly attacked Fulani settlements in some areas in the state. The attack against Fulani settlements came as a reprisal, after 13 indigenes of Plateau were killed by suspected armed herdsmen in Kwatas village of Bokkos Local Government Area of the State
In a similar development, Governor of Plateau State, Simon Bako Lalong, has ordered the immediate arrest of all Fulani community leaders in troubled areas of the Plateau State.
In giving directives to the Plateau state commissioner of police, Isaac Akinmoyede, Sahara reporters quoted the Governor as saying: “I have changed, it is no longer business as usual, people cannot continue to die and we do nothing about it. “Arrest all Ardos-Fulani leaders, community heads until they produce the killers. “All community leaders should be in cell.
Arrest them now, nobody is above the law. If they don’t produce the killers, keep them in cell. Nobody has immunity except me and the deputy governor.”
