Besides, he debunked rumours about potential assasination on  prominent politicians in the state: “I’m not aware of such rumour. What have they done to be assassinated?

But let me warn that such rumours are too expensive, and anyone caught abusing the minds of citizens on such grievous issues will be arrested and prosecuted.”

Joseph Lengman, who represented Governor Simon Lalong at the meeting, said: “The initiative by the police to involve other stakeholders in tackling insecurity is fantastic.

Government will offer it full support; for the fact that we are enjoying relative peace in the state now, but we will not relax, that peace has come, government will continue to play its role effectively.
