Plateau State Governor-elect Caleb Mutfwang says foreign mercenaries are behind attacks in the state.
Recently, score of people were murdered in the North Central State, prompting the imposition of a curfew in two communities of Fungzai and neighbouring Kubat in the newly created district of Bwai in the Mangu Local Government Area.
But the governor, who was on a Television Programme, blamed foreign mercenaries for the incident and the incessant attacks in the state.
While admitting he is not in the best position to speak about the crisis since he is yet to be sworn in, Mutfwang said “I can assure you that these people are brought in from outside those communities”.
When asked if they are Nigerians, he said, “I don’t have exact details to give you at the moment. But all the years down the line, a lot of their identities have been revealed that these are not Nigerians and they have been brought in as foreign mercenaries”.
