The Plateau State Women for Women and He for She expresses shock over the recent killings of innocent citizens in the State and commiserates with the government and people of Plateau State over the killings and waste of human lives. It is disheartening that Plateau State which has enjoyed some form of peace in the last few years has now been thrown into another spate of killings and destruction of properties.

A socio-cultural group, Izu-Umunna, has frowned at the arrest of Senator Enyinnaya Harcourt Aberibe, saying that his arrest is viewed as a political witch-hunt. Even though the Senator was later released on Tuesday and allowed access to his lawyer, Izu-Umunna still frowned at the embarrassment the DSS made him go through, adding that the witch-hunt is as a result of the Senator's bold stands in speaking the truth and criticism of government obnoxious policies. The group who spoke in a statement and co signed by its President, Dr. Ugo Ihekuna and it's secretary, Barr. Tony Egwuonwu, and a copy made available to our correspondent, said, the refusal of the DSS operatives to allow him access to his lawyers, doctors and family members during the illegal detention further revealed a sinister motive on their part. "We are inclined to agree with several other commentators that his ordeal is directly linked to his boldness in speaking truth to power and criticism of govern
