PLATEAU: Governor Mutfwang lifts curfew on Mangu LGA after five months

THE curfew imposed on the Mangu Local Government Area of Plateau State in the wake of violent attacks on communities in the area, has been lifted five months after the stay-at-home order was issued.

In a statement signed by the Director of Press and Public Affairs, Gyang Bere, said the decision to lift the order by Governor Caleb Mutfwang, was taken after careful consultation with the state security council giving a return of normalcy to the affected communities.

The decision is also, to pave the way for residents in the communities, to engage in agricultural and economic activities.

The statement said Mutfwang encouraged community leaders across the divides of faith and ethnicity to continue with strategic dialogue and nurturing trust, fostering tolerance and promoting better understanding among the people.

Residents were urged to embrace peace, and unity, and to remain their brother’s keepers to foster peaceful coexistence in their communities.

The governor equally expressed deep gratitude to security agencies in the state and beyond, for their sacrifices and tireless efforts towards addressing the issues, and urged them to continue monitoring and maintaining law, and order across the seventeen local government areas of the state.
