Security in Plateau State are currently tracking masterminds of a recent invitation to an event in a supposed Emirate in Jos, Officials say.
The supposed event, State Commissioner of Information, Dan Manjang said is “clearly the handwork of mischief makers and crisis merchants who are determined to instigate crisis and generate a breach of the peace that is currently prevailing in the State.”
An invitation card for the installation of one Alhaji Samaila Abdullahi as the Sarkin Kerana 4 in Bukuru, Jos South Local Government Area trended on the social media last Thursday.
The said “Bukuru Emirate Council” where the event was supposed to hold is “nonexistent” said Manjang in a press statement, Friday.
“Government will not fold its arms to allow such mischief makers tamper with the peace of Jos South Local Government and the entire State by inciting people against one another.
“The Jos South Local Government Management, traditional and community leaders as well as security agencies have already met and directed those behind this alleged turbaning to desist forthwith or face the wrath of the law.
“The people of Bukuru, Jos South Local Government and the entire State are advised to go about their normal businesses and be vigilant to report any suspicious activity to the law enforcement agencies,” says Manjang.
