The Plateau State Police Command on Wednesday denied reports that it had declared wanted a member of the Peoples Democratic Party, Dung Tari, of Vwang village in Jos South Local Government Area of Plateau State.
The Plateau State Police Public Relations Officer, DSP Abu Emmanuel, told reporters in Jos that the Police Command has not issued any statement declaring anybody wanted as a result of the PDP congresses in the state.
It was reported that Tari was declared wanted by the Police in the state following violence that erupted at the PDP ward congress at Vwang Vom.
Emmanuel said the command had not formally received any violence report from the area and warned politicians against sponsoring reports that could create misunderstanding, adding the Police will not tolerate any act of lawlessness in the state.
He said: “I want to categorically state that I’m not aware of any statement declaring a member of the PDP wanted in the state and nothing as such has happened in the state.”
“You would recalled that the PDP ward Congresses conducted last Saturday in Plateau State was peaceful without violence.”
However, the supporters of the two contenders of the chairmanship position of the PDP in the state, former Minister of Sports, Hon. Damishi Sango, and former member of the House of the Representatives, Hon. Bitrus Kaze, are seriously campaigning for their masters to win the seat.
