Terrorists occupying Plateau schools for years, gov Mutfwang laments

Plateau State Governor, Caleb Mutfwang, has stated that terrorists have been occupying schools in the Barkin-Ladi Local Government Area of the state for five years without being dislodged.

Mutfwang, who was a guest on Channels Television’s Sunrise Daily programme on Tuesday, also knocked the federal government over what he described as the “lack of political will” by the Federal Government to flush out marauding terrorists in the state.

“We must stop this carnage,” the governor said matter-of-factly, adding that security agents “cannot continue with this reactionary strategy but be proactive”.

“As I am talking to you today, in Barkin-Ladi Local Government, schools have been occupied by these terrorists for some years now. Not less than 64 communities have been displaced and the lands have been taken over by these marauding terrorists,” he added.

PUNCH METRO reported that gunmen attack in the state on Monday led to the death of 86 individuals, with 221 houses destroyed.
