Nasarawa State Government says it will deal decisively with criminal elements who are bent on taking the state back to the dark days of unrest and insecurity.
Senior Special Assistant to the state Governor on Conflict Resolution Mr. Moses Utondu stated this while addressing some Internally Displaced Persons in Kadarko, Keana Local Government Area of the state.
The displaced persons who were from Doma and Keana Local Government Areas of the state fled their homes in over 15 border communities between Benue and Nasarawa States following attack on Ajimaka village by unknown gunmen.
Mr Utondu who said the state government was doing everything possible to ensure every part of the state is secure, called on the affected people to remain calm and shun reprisals.
He explained that the visit to the camps was to ascertain the number of displaced persons and their condition and report to the Governor for immediate supply of relief materials.
One of the Internally Displaced Persons, Mr Cletus Wansha who pointed out that over 3000 people were displaced from their homes due to the attack, appealed for deployment of more security personnel to the communities.
The Nasarawa State President, Tiv Development Association, Mr Peter Ahemba was among the delegation on the visit to the IDPs.
