President Muhammadu Buhari has ordered the Nigerian Army and the Police to end the killings in Plateau State and ensure that the security situation in the state does not deteriorate.
The President gave the order amid fresh killings in the state, which has been the venue of religious violence and herdsmen-farmers clashes over the past decade.
According to his Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu, President Buhari is devoted to the sanctity of Nigeria’s unity, and encourages Nigerians of all groups to learn to live together in peace and harmony and also sent his condolences to those who lost their loved ones in the attack and the people of the state.
Twenty-nine people were reportedly killed on Monday in an early morning attack on Nkyie Dongwro village in Miango District of Bassa Local Government Area in Plateau State.
