President Bola Ahmed Tinubu on Tuesday said circle of violence in Plateau State must come to an end.
Sad about the recent violence and killings, he kicked against the communal killings in the Mangu Local Government Area of Plateau State and parts of Benue State.
The President said this in a statement issued by Dele Alake, Special Adviser to the President on Communications & Strategy.
According to Tinubu, the bloodletting among the warring communities in the two states are depressing and needless.
It quoted him as saying: “It is most unfortunate that in this orgy of violence, an innocent eight-month-old baby in Farin Lamba community of Vwang District, Jos South Local Government, died in a conflict she knew nothing about.
“A major consequence of perennial conflict is always the tragic loss of innocent lives.
“To build virile, peaceful and prosperous communities demand tolerance and forgiveness for every perceived wrongdoing.”
Tinubu charged concerned stakeholders to work hand in hand in order to achieve long-lasting peace.
While reiterating his administration’s resolve to stamp out all forms of criminalities in the country, therefore instructing security agencies to bring masterminds of the cruel acts to book.
The President, however, called on governments of Plateau and Benue States and relevant agencies to provide necessary support to victims who have been displaced as a result of the killings.
