Gov Simon Lalong of Plateau State has condemned the recent attacks in Jos North and Riyom Local Government Areas of the state.

The governor made this known during the opening ceremony of the zonal public hearing of the senate committee on the review of the 1999 Constitution on Wednesday.

Lalong described the attacks as barbaric and callous.

He expressed concern that the attacks claimed the lives of many including women and children.

The Governor also commended the efforts of the security agencies in curbing insecurity issues but urged them to fish out the culprits to ensure they are made to face the law.

“Hopefully, this constitutional review should lead to better policing that is closer to the people to stop this kind of unacceptable murders.

“That is why we have embraced Community Policing which is a precursor to State Police.

“In addition, we have strengthened our Operation Rainbow, which is backed by law and has helped us tremendously in tackling crime and insecurity in the state,” he said.
