Member representing Mangu/Bokkos Federal Constituency of Plateau State, Solomon Bulus Maren on Thursday urged the security agencies to deploy more personnel and arms to stop incessant killings of his constituents.

Addressing newsmen in Abuja, he said the recent killings and destruction of property in his constituency was ugly and barbaric.

He said over 30 persons, including children, had been killed within a month.

He said: “We want the world to know that on the 14th day of November 2022, an innocent and law-abiding citizen in Gold village of Butura land was attacked, maimed and killed while returning from the farm for just no reason.

“Also, on November 15, a group of militia suspected to be herders, fully armed with sophisticated weapons and ammunition launched an attack on Maikatako village also in Butura ward of Bokkos LGA where they killed and burnt to ashes more than 11 people, injured many and destroyed properties worth millions of naira as well as left hundreds of people homeless and displaced.”
