The member representing Barkin Ladi / Riyom federal constituency, Hon. Bar. ID Gyang has issued a statement condemning on the People of Irigwe in Bassa LGA.
The statement Reads: “The night attack that was visited on an Irigwe village in Bassa LGA on Thursday 7/9/17 came as a rude shock given the generally peaceful situation in the state albeit instances of malicious destruction of farm crops and isolated cases of ambush on hapless citizens in the hinterland.
“That over 18 lives were lost in the horrendous adventure of the merchants of death is a development that constitute a threat to the peace momentum on the Plateau.
“To say that the attack constitutes a set back to the peace process is obvious and requires an all encompassing intervention to avoid reversal of the peace.
“it is necessary that while the security agencies deploy and demonstrate capacity to apprehend the perpetrators, citizens must understand and agree never to resort to violence as a means of resolving grievances.
“I deeply sympathise and commiserate with the families of the slain victims, the Irigwe community, the government and peace loving people of Plateau State.
“God bless Plateau State with lasting peace, amen.” the statement said.
