JUST IN: President Tinubu approves establishment of Military Base in Plateau
President Bola Tinubu has approved the immediate establishment of a Military Barracks, in Plateau State.
This follows the tragic attacks resulting in the loss of over 200 lives across three local government areas in Plateau state – Bokkos, Mangu, and Barkin Ladi
The Barracks will be located in Miller Farm (Gada Biyu) Mbar District, Bokkos local government area.
President Tinubu directed General Christopher Musa, the Chief of Defense Staff, to coordinate the implementation of this initiative to address the security challenges facing the region.
Former governor of Plateau state, Joshua Dariye had made efforts to facilitate the establishment of the Barracks to halt the continuous attacks that have resulted in loss of life, widespread looting, and destruction of property.
Once operational, the Barracks will swiftly intervene to address the relentless attacks and killings in Bokkos, Mangu, Riyom, Barkin Ladi, and neighboring Nasarawa state.
