Gambo said the member representing the area in the Plateau state House of Assembly, Peter Gyendeng had visited to calm them while the state commissioner of Police, Undie Adie and his team had also visited the scene.
Meanwhile, NAIJ.com had reported that the Plateau state government said it had set in motion machinery to fish out those who embarrassed its principal, Governor Simon Lalong, who was pelted with stones on Saturday, July 14 at an IDP camp.
Governor Lalong is becoming increasingly unpopular in the north-central state after series of attacks by armed herdsmen on local communities, populated by farmers.
Many accuse the governor of playing politics with the situation and failing address the issues headlong like some of his counterparts in other states.
