Plateau State Governor Caleb Mutfwang has implored for calm as security forces strive to restore normalcy following an assault on Chikam community in Bokkos Local Government on Thursday night.

The Governor described the attack as barbaric and assured citizens, especially students, of the government's resolute dedication to safeguarding their lives and property.

This was contained in a statement signed by his Director of Press and Public Affairs, Gyang Bere on Friday.

According to the statement, the community is neighbouring Plateau State University Bokkos, which resulted in the loss of a 200-level Computer Science student.

The Governor urged them to remain composed in the face of the tragedy, as the government is determined to apprehend and prosecute those responsible for the heinous acts.

Governor Mutfwang stressed the importance of collaboration among the university management, students, community leaders, and security agencies for enhanced safety of everyone in the area.

He commended the swift response of security agencies to violent incidents and encouraged them to remain steadfast in fulfilling their constitutional duty to protect innocent citizens.

“The Governor extended his heartfelt condolences to the family of the deceased student and all those affected by the incident. He prayed for the swift recovery of the injured,” the statement reads in part.
