Plateau youth group has commended the Defence Headquarters, DHQ for its proactive measures in dealing with the renewed crisis in Plateau State arising from recent killings of some people in parts of Barkin Ladi local government area of the state.
They urged DHQs to do more in the areas of more manpower release ,more surveillance helicopters, operational vehicles, power bikes due to the difficult terrain in the state, saying this will no doubt enhance the revolution needed to combat the recent uprisings that have become a huge concern to the people.
The group under the aegis of Association of Concerned Plateau Indigenous Youths Group, AOCOIYOG, however, called on the military high command to do more in the areas of manpower release.
Addressing the newsmen yesterday in Jos, the group said its appeal to the DHQ was necessitated by the difficult terrain in Plateau State, especially the crisis prone areas where it noted, troops of the military task force were finding difficult to penetrate.
In a statement signed by the convener of the group, Prince Rotdunna Ibn Sekat and Secretary, Dr Pam Davou and read to newsmen, the group also warned political actors in the state against politicizing the renewed crisis in the state, tasking them to come out of blame games and work together for a quick and peaceful resolution of the unfortunate development.
It read:”We are particularly worried with the attitude of political players in the state who are making desperate attempts to politicize our current misfortune.
“This unfortunate development has been demonstrated in the recent mixed crowds that staged protest at the government house, obviously to embarrass the government of Plateau state thus threatening our national security and mutual co-existence.”
