JOS – Sen. Gyang Pwajok, (PDP-Plateau), on Wednesday condemned the recent communal clash between the people of Irigwe and Rukuba in Bassa Local Government area of the state.

In a statement released in Jos by his Special Assistant on media, Chuwang Dung, the senator cautioned the communities to eschew violence.

Pwajok described “as sad and regrettable”  that the two tribes that had co-existed for decades needed to take arms against each other.

He said that the clash over land matters was uncalled for and urged for dialogue among the leaders of the communities toward resolving the issue through dialogue.

He further advised the warring communities to shun other acts capable of breaching peace in the area.

“We should be seen building and developing our communities not fighting for whatever reasons,” he said.

The senator, who warned instigators of the crisis to desist from furthering it, called on law enforcement agencies to take necessary measures to restore normalcy among the affected communities. (NAN)
