Tension In Plateau As STF Orders Fulani Out Of Ancestral Villages

The Plateau attacks that left over 20 dead The Special Task Force charged with maintaining peace in Plateau has given inhabitants of some crisis-prone villages 48 hours to vacate the settlements.

A statement signed by STF spokesman, Capt. Salisu Mustapha, said in Jos on Saturday that a military operation was going on in the affected areas located in Barkin-Ladi and Riyom local government areas, the News Agency of Nigeria reports.

Among the affected villages are Mahanga, Kakuruk, Maseh and Shong 2.
“The inhabitants of the affected areas are to vacate immediately with their property,” the statement stated.
The statement, however, advised residents of neighbouring settlements such as KuraFalls, Kuzuk, Sharuk, Rim of Gashish Districts not to panic.

“Residents of such areas should just be very careful of their movements within the area and avoid places of military operation until further notice,” the statement said.

It also advised people to report any suspicious movement or activities in their areas.

NAN reports that the military action may have resulted from the incessant attacks by gunmen on some communities in the areas.
The attacks reached a crescendo on Sunday when a serving senator, Gyang Dantong, and Majority Leader in the Plateau House of Assembly, Mr. Gyang Fulani, lost their lives in a stampede after gunmen attacked them at Maseh village during a burial ceremony.
The two lawmakers had gone to the village to join others for the mass burial of several dozens of villagers that were killed in earlier attacks by gunmen.

    why will they leave, because they are not Nigerians?! They’ll go NOWHERE!!! I hope Fulani will triumph and depend themselves. Berom agenda must fail. Jona jang must not live a happy life.

    I think this will never be a way out to this menace. If these men are forced to leave, where are they going? And if they go, should the problem be solved? All these crises and violence have their genesis. The genesis is that of injustice, poverty, inequaly, unemployment among others and the government is yet to address these.

    This is arrand nonsense, where were the STF when berom made life miserable for muslims? Why taken action on fulani now?

    This will worsen the crisis. The fulanis will make sure that peace lacks in the area. There is no short cut to peace. The due process must be followed.

    Oh my Dear idris ! Stop sounding like an illiterate, fulanis are fellow nigerians just like you and I. The fact that they are not stationary that’s does not disqualified their citizenship just as enshrined in constitutions. I think the issue of ejecting fulanis out of their ancestral villages is not Fair, why fulanis ? What about Beroms ?. I think this should affect the both parties for equity and justice.
