A peace advocacy group has condemned the renewed attacks in some communities of Plateau State by herders.

It urged security agents to arrest and prosecute those behind the renewed attacks.

Recently, herders had invaded Mangu, Bokkos, Riyom, Barkin-Ladi, and Jos South local government areas of the state.

Reacting, the Conference of Plateau State Peace Builders’ Network, COPPEBN, described the renewed attack as senseless and barbaric.

The group stated this in a statement by its National Coordinator, Dung Bot, and the National Secretary, Lucy Wuyep.

“This act of barbarism cannot be tolerated in this era, it is however very unfortunate that this came at a time relative peace has returned to the state due to combined efforts of the special military tasks force in charge of internal security, code-named Operation Safe Haven and other relevant stakeholders.

“We call on the security agencies to go after the perpetrators of this criminal act and apprehend them for onward prosecution,” the statement read.

The group also commended Operation Safe Haven for ensuring peace in the state despite attacks.

“Their efforts in both kinetic power and non- kinetic approach have helped greatly in restoring peace and sanity to Plateau State,” it added.
