The commander said categorically that the situation in the Plateau is becoming more precarious than expected since the unfortunate incident on June this year, with all the effort being made to bring understanding, but the situation is getting out of hand.

“I  have lost three men. They were killed in action as result of circle of violence that resurfaced again. The worst of it is the proliferation of arms on the Plateau that is out of magnitude. There is no nation where you used crime to fight crime,” he said.
