The Plateau State House of Assembly has passed a resolution that all its indigenes studying in Borno State and those serving the National Youth Service Corps, NYSC members be redeployed to other institutions within their catchment areas.

The House’s resolution was reached Tuesday at the plenary under the matter of public urgent importance raised by the member representing Pankshin South Constituency, Henry Lungs.

In his submission, the lawmaker said based on the recent abduction and killing of some indigenes of the state, it is necessary for him to raise concern about other students and NYSC members currently serving in the state.

“This situation is capable of igniting religious crisis in Nigeria, capable of undermining government efforts of peaceful coexistence in Plateau State,” he added.

According to Mr Lungs, the Plateau State Government must be seen doing the right thing over the matter, like issuing travelling warnings to Plateau citizens.

“Government should send a powerful delegation to Borno State Governor and Vice Chancellor of University of Maiduguri, to see how the perpetrators of the act would be apprehended,” he added.
