Lalong said “the local government chairman and heads of security agencies have briefed me on the sad development and the level of investigation so far. I have repeated my charge to them that the days of unknown gunmen are over in Plateau State as innocent people cannot be killed without anybody being apprehended and put to trial.
‘We are using the concept of community policing to dig into this particular case and see to it that the criminals are arrested,” he said.
He further asked people of the area to cooperate with the Local Government Authority as well as security agencies in not only cracking the case but also preventing further occurrences.
