Plateau Police Command on Tuesday denied the rumours making the rounds
in some quarters that their are plans of a jihad in the state.
Police in a statement signed by DSP Tyopev Mathias Terna the Police
public relations officer of the command reads that the attention of the
Plateau State Police Command has been drawn to an inciting document
titled ‘The Final Jihad on the Plateau’ which is being circulated by
mischief makers on the Plateau with the sole aim of creating fear,
anxiety and hate among the peace loving people of Plateau State with the
aim of causing a breakdown of law and order in the State.
After a thorough and careful investigation, the Plateau State Police
Command realised that the initiator of this inciting document opened a
fake Face book Account just for this purpose which he has since closed
down. The Command also found out that there was no truth in the write up
and considers it as the handy work of faceless mischief makers who are
bent on fanning the embers of religious and political hate and disunity
in the State with a view to causing the breach of the peace in the
The Plateau State Police Command therefore warn that, any individual or
group of individuals caught circulating documents capable of inciting
religious passion or promoting hate speeches will be dealt with in
accordance with the extant laws of the land.
Members of the general public are therefore advised to ignore such
insidious write ups and go about their normal and lawful businesses.
