Governor Simon Lalong of Plateau State on Monday visited victims of Saturday attack on Muslim travellers, who are receiving treatment at Plateau State Specialist Hospital and others at Bingham University Teaching Hospital.
At least 25 travellers were hacked to death by suspected Christian militia at Rukuba, Jos.
A statement by the governor’s spokesman, Makut Macham, said Mr Lalong was in company of his deputy, Sonni Tyoden, DIG Sanusi Lemu, heads of security agencies in the state, and some members of the state executive council.
He said the governor was informed that some of the patients were victims of Rukuba road attack, while others were victims of Sunday violence, which occurred before the imposition of a 24 hour curfew on Jos North.
Mr Lalong also went round into some communities within Jos to monitor compliance of the 24-hour curfew on Jos North Local Government Area.
