The chairman, Jos North Local Government of Plateau, Shehu Usman, has warned residents against revenge over the killing of commuters in the area.
Mr Usman gave the warning in a statement on Sunday.
The chairman said the council would not tolerate attempts from any individual or group to disrupt the already established peace and peaceful coexistence of residents in the area.
He described the recent acts of violence on innocent commuters as unacceptable, cautioning residents against the temptation of seeking revenge as security agents were handling the matter.
Mr Usman stated that any person or group of persons caught in connection with such attacks would be arrested and prosecuted.
The chairman commended the relentless effort of the state governor, Simon Lalong, in putting mechanisms in place to ensure prompt attention and response to security breaches in the state.
He also commended law enforcement agencies for their prompt response in averting an escalation of the violence, urging them to put in every effort to apprehend the perpetrators of the heinous act and bring them to justice.
“This high level of savagery, inhumanity and reckless disregard for the sanctity of life cannot go unpunished,” he said.
He sued for calm and urged residents to go about their normal businesses.
Mr Usman, however, assured the people that the council would continue to work closely with security agencies to ensure the protection of lives and property.
