The Chief Executive Officer of Institute of Human Virology Nigeria, IHVN, Dr. Sunday Patrick Dakum, who also was Labour Party, LP, governorship candidate in the 2023 polls, has expressed heavy concern over the lingering attacks in Mangu Local Government Area of Plateau State in which for the second time a 24 hour curfew was imposed.
According to him, the attacks are worrisome in which more people are sacked from their homes, little children killed and exposed to harsh conditions of hunger, malaria and other diseases, lactating mothers lacking adequate care for their infants, homes and properties destroyed and many heinous atrocities meted to innocent people.
He lamented that these attacks are depriving the inhabitants of their rights of attending to their occupation which is farming and are recipes for food insecurity in due course which will have great negative impact on the entire state.
Furthermore, he said there is every need for all hands to be on deck to find lasting solutions to the causes of these attacks and halt them or risks expansion beyond Mangu.
Dakum commiserates with those who lost their love ones, and prayed for God’s comfort and wishes speedy recovery to the injured.
He admonished all to be fervent in prayers for God’s divine intervention, saying it’s no time for blaming game and onlooking as insecurity knows no bounds.
Finally, he called on the security agencies to intensify their efforts to save lives and make the land secured.
