Plateau government warns against planned protest in Jos

Plateau State Government on Monday said it has uncovered a plot by some group of people to embark on a planned protest beginning tomorrow Tuesday 7th September 2021 in Jos city.

The State Commissioner for Information, Mr Dan Manjang, who gave this hint on Monday evening said while Plateau state Government acknowledges and respects the right of citizens to peaceful protest, it, however, reminds the general public that the ban on a public procession by whatever guise and name is still in force particularly at this time that the State is still nursing its wounds from the recent attacks that affected some parts of the State.

”Government, therefore, warns the organisers of the purported protest to drop the idea in the interest of peace and security.”

Manjang stressed that Security agents have been placed on red alert to rise up to the challenge by arresting anyone who violates this directive.

“The Government also enjoins all law-abiding citizens to go about their normal duties without any fear of molestation or intimidation.,”

According to him, Parents are also advised to rein in their wards and continue to support the Government in working for the restoration of total normalcy to the State.
