The Inspector General of Police IGP, Usman Alkali Baba, has ordered sealing of all the Seventeenth Local Government Council Secretariats in Plateau State.

Briefing Journalists at the Plateau State Police Command headquarters in Jos, the State capital, the Commissioner of Police, Bartholomew Onyeka, said they have acted on the IGP’s directive in the interest of peace in the state.

Onyeka said this has become necessary due to tensions around the leadership of the Local Government Areas and the possible threat that supporters and Local Government Chairmen pose to critical infrastructure, lives and properties in the state.

He further stated that the decision to take this action is by exercising their constitutional responsibility as Nigeria Police Force to ensure that the above doesn’t hold sway on the Plateau.

The command, therefore, warned that it will not take lightly anyone who tries to disrupt the process or causes any confusion around the Local Government Secretariats, as they will ensure that the law takes its entire course on such persons.

The CP commended the citizens of Plateau State for their continued understanding and urged everyone to go about their lawful businesses in the state.

It could be recalled that tension was raised as the newly inaugurated Transition Committee Chairmen appointed by Governor Caleb Mutfwang of the State attempted to resume office while the dissolved local government Chairmen were still claiming to be in charge of the offices, which resulted in clashes by their supporters in some local government areas.
