The Plateau State chapter of the Jama’atu Nasril lslam (JNI), has condemned the recent killings in Bassa, Jo’s South and Riyom local government areas in the state, saying the killing is against the teaching of Islam.

The state JNI Publicity Secretary, Alhaji Sani Mudi in a statement also lamented the invasion of Miago Chiefdom killing, injuring many persons and burning houses as well as destroying crops on farmlands.

JNI described the development as worrisome, saying that it shows serious danger to the efforts being made to ensure peace by the state government.

He advised the affected communities to sheath their swords and ensure dialogue toward achieving lasting peace and harmony in the state.

According to the statement, “JNI in Plateau under the leadership of Alhaji Muhammad Haruna, the Emir of Wase, wishes to express its deep concern over the recurring violence in Bassa, Jos South, Riyom and the attempt by some miscreants to reignite conflict in Jos North Local Government Area through unprovoked attackson innocent citizens and destruction of properties.”

The statement noted with dismay that the attacks are worrisome developments posing serious threats to the peace efforts of the state government to solidify the gains made through its peace-building activities which have so far delivered impressive results.

The JNI further advised that for lasting peace to be achieved in parts of the state, stakeholders must critically look into the root causes with a view to addressing them.

It believe that a thorough look at the multifaceted nature of the conflicts in Bassa and Riyom also sparked in some part of Jos South and called on concerted efforts to ensure peaceful coexistence.

It noted that the unfortunate incident of violent attacks on innocent persons and their properties in the evening of in Gada biyu area of Jos North is unacceptable and stands condemned in the strongest terms.

The group commended Gov. Simon Lalong and the security agencies for the efforts put in place by ensuring that the violent conflicts did not escalate to other parts of the state.

It, therefore, urged the governor not to be deterred by the happenings but remain focus in providing dividends of democracy to the people and also urged the security agencies to fish out the perpetrators of this heinous crime and their collaborators and ensure they faced the full wrath of the law.

It believed that this would serve as a deterrence to would be perpetrators of violence and conflict merchants in the state.
