APC condemns Mangu communities attacks 




The All Progressives Congress Plateau State Chapter condemns in very strong terms the dastardly and unprovoked attacks on the Kubwat and Fungzai communities of Kombun District of Mangu Local Government Area, Plateau State.

This was contained in a press release signed by Hon. Sylvanus Namang, APC state Publicity Secretary, and made available to THE NIGERIA STANDARD recently in Jos.

The statement added that perpetrators of these heinous acts left on their trail many lives lost with others maimed while houses and unquantified property were senselessly destroyed.

It is sad that the attacks are coming in the wake of the farming season, where the peasants have just begun planting their crops which they largely depend on for their subsistence. They described the act as wicked as it is condemnable in all its ramifications.

However, the displacement of the people who are running helter-skelter to safe havens in neighborhoods and the spiral effects of the attacks have created great anxiety and disquiet in the once peaceful local government area which has witnessed one surprise attack too many in recent times.

The APC in the state is greatly saddened by the unleashing of mayhem on unsuspecting people of the affected communities and hereby extends its heartfelt condolences and sympathy to the bereaved families, the Mishkaham Mwaghavul, Da John Putmang Hirse and Chairman of Mangu Local Government Area, Hon Daniel Daput over this very painful development.

The party also sympathizes with other communities in the state, particularly in Bokkos, Riyom, and Barkin Ladi Local Government Areas which had witnessed a similar despicable loss of lives and property in the past few weeks or months.

The party urges security agencies to go on the trail of the attackers and fish and deal decisively with them as they are certainly not spirits but identifiable human beings.

The APC calls for the mobilization and reinforcement of more security forces to the local government area to nib this wicked act in the bud so that it does not spread to neighbouring communities and other local government areas.

APC is calling on emergency aid and humanitarian agencies operating in the state to provide urgent and most-needed relief to the victims of the attacks.

As a lasting solution, the APC calls for more vigilance and proactive measures as people who have lived together for centuries cannot be used by extraneous forces or covert agents of destruction to turn against each other at this period when the government has put every mechanism in place to ensure peaceful co-existence of its citizens regardless of religion or ethnicity.
