On July 11, 2023, President Bola Tinubu directed security agencies to fish out the perpetrators of the killings and violence in Plateau. The President strongly condemned the recent internecine killings in Mangu and said the country must break the cycle of violence.

“It is most unfortunate that in this orgy of violence, an innocent eight-month-old baby in Farin Lamba community of Vwang District, Jos South Local Government, died in a conflict she knew nothing about,” the President said, according to a statement by Alake on Tuesday.

“A major consequence of perennial conflict is always the tragic loss of innocent lives. To build virile, peaceful and prosperous communities demand tolerance and forgiveness for every perceived wrongdoing.”
