Religious and traditional leaders in Jos, the capital of Plateau State, on Monday, rejected the redeployment of Sector 1 Commander of Operation Safe Haven, Captain Mustafa Umar, from the area.

The leaders said the sector commander’s ability to restore peace within his area of operation, especially in Jos North and some parts of Bassa Local Government Area of the state, was their major reason for rejecting his redeployment.

The leaders, while expressing their dismay over the proposed redeployment of the sector commander during a stakeholders’ meeting in Jos, called on the commander of Operation Safe Haven, Major General Abdussalam Abubakar, to reconsider their decision to transfer the sector commander from the area.

Dallaji Askin Kasuwan, the traditional ruler of Mista Ali, said, “We are appealing to Operation Safe Haven to refrain from transferring the commander because he has been instrumental in ensuring the safety of our communities. Whenever there is a problem, we immediately notice a strong security presence in the area to address it.”

Rev. Hassan Mijah, a member of the security council in Jos North, said: “We urge the GOC to permit him to continue serving in Jos because he carries out his duties without bias towards religion or ethnicity. His primary goal is to maintain peace, and he has consistently succeeded in achieving that.”

Mustafa Ibrahim Bako, the chairman of Main Market Jos, said “The Sector One commander listens to people when there is a problem and quickly responds.”
