Dalyop Emmanuel Ibrahim who is the Vice Principal of the institution sustained serious injuries and is receiving medical treatment at the Jos University Teaching Hospital-JUTH, the Berom Youth Publicity Secretary stated.
He said, “the Berom Youth Moulder-Association, BYM under the leadership of Solomon Dalyop Mwantiri, Esq notes with concern how these Terrorists from Fass and Mahanga now move freely with arms and graze on farmlands, intimidating and killing locals at nearby Communities”.
“Fass and Mahanga as well as Guava” he observed, “have become enclaves of Terrorists, who carry out all sorts of coordinated attacks on villages and Communities in Barkin Ladi, Riyom, Bokkos, Mangu, Jos South and even beyond the state”.
“We therefore call on government to ban open grazing in Plateau state since grazing has become a ploy to continue unleashing havock on human lives and property.
We also call on security operatives to, as a matter of urgency, raid the aforementioned settlement formed by way of forceful occupation after uprooting the aboriginals therefrom. This is necessary in order to get rid of both the terrorist and criminal elements that have firmly defied law and order”, he added.
“In conclusion, the BYM calls on Government to declare Fulani Militias as Terrorists so as to be treated as such”, Rwang Tengwong said.
