The Executive Secretary of the National Christian Pilgrim Centre (NCPC) Rev. Yakubu Pam has said Plateau State will not return to the days of bloodshed any longer because Christian and Muslim bodies are working hard to sustain the cordial relationship between both religious groups.
Rev. Pam spoke when he received members of the Muslim community of Gangare in Jos North LGA who paid him courtesy visit to appreciate him for his donation towards the construction of the Islamiyya Primary School in the area in December last year.
“My joy is to see that we live and work together and benefits from the dividends of democracy. Whatever that comes, we should share it amongst ourselves without any rancour,” he said.
In his remarks, leader of the Muslim delegation, Ustaaz Kabiru Muhammed Chidawa, said they came to appreciate Rev Pam for his immense contribution to the building of Islamic school known as ‘IBN Mas’ud Talir-Fizul Qur’an Primary School’ Gangare, Jos.
In another development, a Fulani group, Gan Allah Fulani Development Association of Nigeria (GAFDAN), yesterday called on security agencies to fish out the perpetrators of the dastardly attack which claimed seven lives in Maiyanga village of Kwall District of Bassa Local Government Area of Plateau State.
Daily Trust Saturday reported how seven herders were killed in two separate attacks in the said area.
Garba Abdullahi Muhammad, Chairman of the group in the state, described the attack as barbaric and uncalled for.
