Inspector-General of Police Kayode Egbetokun said that the police have commenced special operations to tackle the security challenges currently confronting Plateau State.

He disclosed this when he paid a condolence visit to the state governor, Caleb Mutfwang, on Friday in Jos.

“We have commenced a special operation in this state, and I have directed the DIG in charge of Zone 4 to relocate to Plateau State. We are committed to ending this cycle of violence in Plateau, and we call on communities not to be collaborators in this evil act.

“Citizens should rather cooperate with the police and other security agencies, so we can deal with these criminals once and for all,” Egbetokun said.

Responding, Mutfwang commended the police and other security agencies for their efforts towards restoring lasting peace in the state.

“I want to thank President Bola Tinubu for sending the delegation led by Vice President Kashim Shettima to the state. It is a clear demonstration of the political will to deal with the situation once and for all.

“I also commend the security chiefs for demonstrating their commitment to ending these killings. But we urge the security agencies to arrest and prosecute those behind this heinous act; that’s the only way the people will know that justice is served,” Gov Mutfwang said.

The governor expressed his readiness to work with the police and other security agencies to stem the tide of insecurity in the state
