Plateau Attacks’ Sponsors, Masterminds Known by Security Agencies—Gov Mutfwang
On Friday, Governor Caleb Mutfwang of Plateau State categorically stated that the repeated assaults on his state should be officially labeled as acts of terrorism.
He noted that security agencies are well-informed about the individuals responsible for these attacks. Emphasizing the critical need to address these incidents urgently, Governor Mutfwang asserted that those supporting terrorism can be identified.
These statements were made during an interview on Channels Television’s Politics Today program on Friday, following the Supreme Court’s ruling that upheld his victory in the recent gubernatorial election.
The five-member panel, led by Justice Emmanuel Agim, overturned the appellate court’s decision that had initially removed him from office.
Governor Mutfwang, addressing the recent devastating events in Plateau State which resulted in the loss of over 200 lives, conveyed his belief that these occurrences should be officially recognized as acts of terrorism.
What I can tell you about the killings in Plateau and the attacks in recent times is that they are pure acts of terrorism.
“I believe that the sponsors of the terrorists, the financiers of the terrorists, and those who arm the terrorists are known.
“And the security agencies know them, or they have the capacity to know them. And that is why we are insisting that the security agencies must do their work, which is to protect lives and properties,” he said
