The Plateau Peace Building Agency (PPBA) has decried the attacks that led to the killings of people in Ta’agbe Community in Bassa LGA of the State describing same as “a clog to the wheel of our collective progress”
In a statement signed by the Director General of the Agency, Mr. Joseph Lengmang the Agency said the resurgence of violence occasioned by attacks on communities in Bassa Local Government Area of Plateau State by gunmen leading to the loss of precious human lives and property in the last couple of days is not only worrisome but; constitutes a clog in the wheel of our collective progress.
“are appalled by this renewed onslaught on hapless citizens and we truly commiserate with those affected by these recent attacks particularly those who lost loved their ones”
“We are appalled by this renewed onslaught on hapless citizens and we truly commiserate with those affected by these recent attacks particularly those who lost loved their ones. Just when we thought the investment, in both human and material resources, that the PPBA, the Plateau State government and the Plateau State Inter-Religious Council, IRC, as well as, other non-state actors have committed in rebuilding the Peace in the locality especially in the last few months was beginning to yield results, the unfortunate incidents of the last few days especially the coordinated attack on Ta’agbe community in the early hours of Friday November 26 threatens to undermine our modest achievement at healing the wounds of the past as well as rebuilding confidence amongst the people of the area” he posited.
The Director General said the development, unhealthy as it seems, calls for even more stronger collaborative efforts among all stakeholders in order to weed out from our midst these unscrupulous elements who are bent on bringing down the roof upon everybody’s head.
He called on our security agencies to live up to their primary responsibility of safeguarding lives and property of all citizens regardless of where they reside.
