As it continues to rain bombs and explosions in Nigeria in renewed Boko Haram’s orgy of violence the lawmaker representing Plateau Southern Senatorial district of Plateau State, Jeremiah Useni, has condemned the attacks on innocent lives in Jos North local government area of the state and other parts of the country

Useni in a statement made available to newsmen, a copy of which was obtained by the Middle Belt Update, during the week decried the attack which occurred last Sunday, claiming about 50 lives as unfortunate and highly condemnable. He called on residents of Jos north and the entire citizens of the state “to remain calm and stand in solidarity with one another ‘‘in the face of the onslaught by agents of death, destruction and destablisation on our collective resolve to remain as one united people in spite of ethnic and religious differences”.

The retired military general, while joining the plateau State Governor, Simon Bako Lalong in condemning the attacks says: “it is regrettable that at a time when Muslim faithfuls are settled to the fulfillment of a religious obligation, agents of death, chaos and anarchy have chosen to disrupt the peace of the state by orchestrating a spate of sporadic bomb blasts to portray a state of dissatisfaction that pitches otherwise peaceful co-inhabitants against themselves”.

In the same vein, “the senator congratulates Mrs Hulder Fwangchi over her appointment as the new head of service of plateau state”, saying her appointment is well deserved.
