Mutfwang lifts curfew on Plateau LG after five months

Plateau State Governor, Caleb Mutfwang, on Sunday,  announced the lifting of the curfew imposed on the Mangu Local Government Area of the state in January.

The governor had imposed a 24-hour curfew on the Mangu LGA after some bandits invaded the Pushit and Sabon-Gari communities and killed 13 persons.

Some residents were equally injured while several houses were burnt during the attack.

To avoid a reprisal and the escalation of the situation, the governor had imposed a curfew.

Announcing the lifting of the curfew on Sunday, Mutfwang, in a statement by his Director of Press and Public, Gyang Bere, said the decision was taken after consultation with the State Security Council, following the restoration of normalcy in the area

He said that the gesture would pave the way for residents to engage in agricultural and economic activities.

The statement encouraged community leaders across the divides of faith and ethnicity to continue with strategic dialogue aimed at nurturing trust, fostering tolerance, and promoting better understanding among the people.

While urging the residents of Mangu Local Government Area to embrace peace, unity and remain their brother’s keepers, the governor said his administration would continue to be fair and just to all.

“He expressed gratitude for the cooperation and support received so far and urged the community to maintain their collaboration with the security agencies to ensure the complete restoration of peace and order in the Local Government Area.

“Governor Mutfwang equally expressed deep gratitude to all the security agencies in the state and beyond for their sacrifices and tireless efforts towards addressing the issues and urged them to continue monitoring and maintaining law and order across the 17 local government areas,” the statement added.
