Plateau Crises: Christians, Muslims Hail OPSH on Quick Return of Peace


A coalition of Christian and Muslim groups under the aegis of    National Coalition of Muslim and Christian Groups for Peace and Development (NACOMPD)has commended the internal  military  task force, Operation Safe Haven, OPSH, for prompt restoration of peace in Plateau state. 

While commiserating with the people of the state,thegroup  said “we condemned in the strongest terms the killings of over 90 people in Barkin Ladi  Local Government Area of Plateau State by some criminal elements.” 

Addressing the media in Jos at the weekend,  after an emergency meeting it held to appraise the security situation in the state, the group said it commended the security agencies especially the Operation Safe Haven for what it called the professional strategies it adopted in bringing the situation under control within shortest possible time,  therefore averting further spread and lost of lives.

In the joint news conference addressed by the  National President, Sheik Mohammed Galadanciand the  National Secretary,  Reverend Silas Yakamata, the coalition “urged Operation  Safe Haven  to prosecute the criminals arrested after discreet investigation in Jos to avoid jurisdictional     and interference bottlenecks.” 

The meeting which was attended by delegates from all parts of the country, according to Gadalanchi,”also tasked the State  Security  Service,  DSS and Nigeria Police  Intelligence  and criminal Investigation Department  to sit up to their constitutional roles by providing intelligence information before attacks or any crisis to avoid the reactionary response by security agencies.”

 The coalition also hailed the actions of  the Miyetti   Allah Cattle  Breeders  Association  and all the Berom  social cultural, political groups for distancing themselves from any criminal elements in their tribe or organization saying, this is the best way to achieve lasting peace.” 

 The coalition appealed to the  federal government to without delay,  provide all manpower and logistics  support to the security agencies in Plateau  State. 

” We commend the effort of Operation Safe  Haven  for  taking  the bull by the horn in the arrest of over 25 suspects directly connected to the attacks. This is the first time we are seeing a commander who damned any sentiment  to arrest suspects from both sides of the conflict.

The group urged the Plateau State Government and the security agencies to resettle all the IDPs  back to their original homes. 

Expressing its further appreciation on the efforts of OPSH in the quick restoration of peace in the state following the ugly development, the group insisted that: “We ” strongly commend without reservation the doggedness, firmness, fairness to all parties, professionalism, and impartial position of the Commander  of Operation  Safe  Haven,  Major General Anthony  Atolagbe.” 

NACOMPD also resolved to immediately mobilize relief materials to be taken to  the IDPs’camps to alleviate the  hardship being faced by the displaced.
