The state and federal governments should work together to ensure that the state’s anti-land-grabbing law is fully implemented, according to the Forum of Former Youth Leaders in Plateau State. This is in response to the attacks that occurred on Christmas Eve in certain communities, where many people lost their lives, livelihoods, and properties.
At a press briefing in Jos, the state capital, Yakubu Itse, the forum’s chairman, revealed this information.
He declared: “We think the security authorities will launch a thorough investigation to apprehend the perpetrators of this horrible act, given our faith in them.
“We demand that the federal government and the Plateau administration work together to ensure that the anti-land-grabbing legislation is put into effect.
Calling a spade a spade, the new federal, state, and local governments should make sure that those responsible are located, apprehended, and given the proper penalties.
“Our security agencies should demonstrate a high degree of professionalism in order to yield the necessary outcomes in the sequence of attacks in Plateau State and throughout Nigeria.”
“We demand that the security agencies look into the prior, purported request by the Fulanis to make Nigeria their global headquarters. The results of this inquiry shouldn’t be stored in the past like those of the others.
