FG 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 the state (Bokkos, Mangu, and Barkin Ladi).
The Barracks will be located in Miller Farm (Gada Biyu) Mbar District of Bokkos local government area.
The Chief of Defense Staff, General Christopher Musa, was directed by the President 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.
This initiative is especially crucial following the simultaneous sacking of certain communities, widespread looting, and loss of life on Christmas Eve of 2023 in Bokkos, Mangu, and Barkin Ladi local government areas.
