Lalong: Perpetrators of crisis will be prosecuted

Gov. Simon Lalong

Perpetrators of crisis in any part of Plateau State will be prosecuted, Governor Simon Lalong has said.

Lalong said this Tuesday while fielding questions from State House reporters after a meeting with President Muhammadu Buhari at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.

The governor said the curfew imposed on troubled areas would soon be further relaxed, adding that the security situation in the State had “greatly” improved.

He said: “What we are doing is to ensure that there is proper investigation and prosecution. You know, both the Soldiers and Police are controlled by the Presidency and right now they are diligently working in my state on a daily basis.

“That is why on the first day, I announced a 24-hour curfew but I kept on relaxing it. By the grace of even this week, the curfew would further be relaxed, so that people can carry out their normal activities.”

Lalong said President Buhari promised to provide support to those displaced (victims) by the recent clashes in the State.
