Senator representing Plateau North senatorial district, Jonah Jang, has appealed for calm following recent clashes between people of Vwang and Kwall communities in Jos South and Bassa local government areas of Plateau State.
This was contained in a press statement signed by Chris Gyang the media aide to Senator Jang and made available to newsmen in Jos at the weekend.
While urging both Beroms and Irigwes in these areas to embrace peace and use dialogue rather than violence in settling their disputes, the lawmaker lamented that people who had lived like brothers for centuries were now fighting each other as a way of settling their problems.
Senator Jang commiserated with the families of the deceased and other affected persons and called on both sides to remain law abiding as all stakeholders were doing their best to amicably resolve the dispute.
He hailed traditional rulers, the STF and other security agencies for their timely intervention and assured that, as the vice chairman of the Senate Committee on National Security and Intelligence, he was fully taking part in on-going peace efforts in these and other parts of the state facing similar challenges.
Jang also restated his belief that the recipe for peaceful co-existence in the northern senatorial zone, Plateau State and the country as a whole was for people living together to have the spirit of forgiveness in their hearts and tolerance for one another, irrespective of tribe and religion.
