The Nigerian Army has promised to clamp down on armed bandits terrorising residents of Plateau State and stop the incessant killings in the state.
The Commander Of Operation Safe Haven, Major General Augustine Agundu disclosed this on Saturday while reacting to the murder of three soldiers working with the Special Task Force, Operation Safe Haven.
“The peace on the Plateau has been disrupted to a situation that is no longer acceptable. I lost some men yesterday because certain persons have decided to take laws into their hands.
“I have declared enough is enough. What happened in Barkin Ladi will never repeat itself again. I’ve locked down Barkin Ladi completely and no human being is going to cause further havoc in that local government.
“Whatever is going on in Barkin Ladi local government, Riyom Local Government, Bassa Local Government, Bokkos Local Government, that is enough. My troops are resolved to bring the situation decisively under control.”
He urged leaders of Plateau communities to get their youths to decorum so that residents of the communities can go about their business peacefully and without fear.
