2 killed, several others injured in fracas in Plateau – Governor

The governor of Plateau, Simon Lalong while meeting with community and religious leaders, has confirmed that two persons died during a brawl in the state on Thursday night.


  • Mr Lalong said several others sustained injuries and are being treated in hospitals across Jos.
  • Confirming the incident, he said, it “took us by surprise. I call on community and religious leaders to caution their wards at home as any culprit arrested would not go free as nobody is above the law.
  • “I want to tell all citizens that their security and welfare as the primary concern of Government is assured by the Rescue Administration. I am therefore enjoining all citizens to go about their business with the assurance that their safety is guaranteed.”
  • Lalong urged religious and community leaders, neighbourhood vigilantes and residents of the state to report anyone carrying out violent acts.
