The Speaker, Plateau State House of Assembly, Abok Ayuba, visited injured victims of Tuesday’s attack in Yelwa Zangam community of Jos North Local Government Area in hospital on Saturday.

Ayuba led other legislators on the visit and donated an undisclosed amount of money on behalf of the assembly as part of assistance for the upkeep of the victims.

The speaker, who expressed sadness over persistent attacks in Plateau, said there was no alternative to peace and harmony.

“The House of Assembly condemns killing of people in the state in whatever guise. We appeal to citizens to forgive, reconcile and embrace one another in love.

“We thank the management of the hospital for accepting the victims and we urge it to continue to give proper treatment to victims. We assure you that government is committed to bearing the cost of the victims’ treatment,’’ he said.

A member of the community, Samuel Jeje, who received the cash on behalf of the victims, thanked the lawmakers for the visit.

The Administrator of the hospital, Jovita Egwu, who received the speaker and his entourage, said that two of the 13 victims brought to the hospital died while the other 11 victims were responding to treatment.

The delegation was also at the Plateau State Specialist Hospital, Jos, where victims of Rukuba Road attack were receiving treatment and made a cash donation to support them. (NAN)
