Gov. Lalong urges calm in the aftermath of the Jos South attack.

Plateau State Governor Simon Lalong has called for calm following the recent attack on the Farinlamba Turu community in Jos South Local Government Area.

Governor Lalong's appeal was contained in a statement issued on Thursday in Jos, the Plateau State capital, by his Director of Press and Public Affairs, Dr Makut Macham.

He called the killing of at least six artisanal miners "callous, condemnable, and unfortunate."

NAN reports that the community was attacked on April 25 where six people were reportedly killed at a mining spot.

He said security agencies were already working to apprehend the attackers and bring them to justice, describing all the loss of lives and properties as sad.

The governor, while sympathising with the families of the victims, assured them that the government was determined to ensure that those who take joy in causing pain on innocent citizens were dealt with.

“No one will be allowed to reverse the gains made in restoring peace and security to the state,” he said.

Similarly, the governor expressed shock and sorrow over the unfortunate accident involving a fuel tanker which exploded along Bauchi road Jos, leaving some dead, many injured and properties destroyed.
