The Plateau State government has debunked reports making rounds that two luxurious buses had been set ablaze in Jos.
The report indicated that 2 luxurious buses conveying about 156 Igbo passengers had been set on fire.
This is coming a few days after violence erupted, which saw about thirty people killed.
The violence led to the imposition of a 24-hour curfew in the Plateau State capital, Jos.
Debunking the purported story, Mr Lalong, in a statement signed by his Director of Press and Public Affairs, Dr Makut Simon Macham, said it“is purely the handiwork of crises merchants mischief-makers who want to create panic and instigate violence and fear among the people.
He added: “For the avoidance of doubt, the security situation in Plateau State is very much under control as security personnel have been deployed to all parts of Jos to enforce the 24-hour curfew still in force, as well as to ensure compliance with the dusk to dawn curfew in Jos South and Bassa LGAs.”
