Plateau killings: Religious, community leaders hiding criminals – Governor Lalong 



Governor Simon Lalong of Plateau state on Tuesday, November 6, blamed the crisis in the state on religious and community leaders saying they are compounding pandemonium by hiding criminals in their domain.

Daily Trust reports that Lalong made this known State House Correspondents after meeting with President Muhammadu Buhari together with the executives of the Church of Christ in Nations (COCIN) at the State House Villa, Abuja.

According to him, ”And I have also charged community leaders just like President said, I said if you want to ensure peace in your place, community leaders must also come out and expose criminals in their domain.  ”But when someone commit crime and community leaders or religious leaders fight to protect them that why we have problems.

If they had exposed the killers of Alkali (General Idris Alkali) earlier everything would have been solved. But there you have community and religious leaders who claimed to be religious, who claimed to be religious leaders hiding criminals.”

The minister of youths and sports, Solomon Dalung said they discussed issues relating to security, plight of displaced persons and other national issues.
