Sen. Istifanus Gyang (PDP, Plateau North) on Monday condemned the killing of four youths and the burning of houses and food barns on Sunday night by gunmen in Plateau North.
Gyang was quoted in a statement by his Special Assistant, Musa Ashoms, as reacting to the attacks on Rikwechongu and Zirshe villages of Irigwe Chiefdom in Bassa Local Government Area where four persons were murdered.
He said that the attack came shortly after a similar ambush and killing of youths in Riyom Local Government Area.
He said that while all efforts were focused on rebuilding peace and reconciling the people of Plateau North, there were still persons whose preoccupation was violence and bloodletting.
The lawmaker urged the government and the security agencies to secure and protect law-abiding citizens and communities of Plateau North and bring the culprits to justice.
