A group under the auspices of The Plateau Youths Stakeholders for Peace has called on security agents in the country to immediately arrest Hon. Beni Lar, member representing Langtang North/Langtang South Federal Constituency for purportedly instigating crisis in Plateau State.
 
Hon. Beni Lar is the daughter of Late Solomon Lar, the former Governor of Plateau State.
 
The group in a statement to journalists by Barr. Nanzing Ndam, its Zonal Coordinator, alleged that Lar was trying to recruit more people into joining her bid to cause mayhem in the state.
 
The group alleged that the lawmaker was making frantic effort at truncating the forthcoming Local Government elections in the state, stressing that she insisted on elongation of tenure of her Council Chairman to 2023.
 
The group claimed that the tenure of the Chairman Local Government had since elapsed and wondered why Lar wanted the tenure elongated for an additional two years.
 
“During the recent crisis that truncated the unprecedented six years of relative peace in Jos, she heightened the sense of insecurity by providing 30 buses to mobilising and transporting students of the University of Jos out of their campuses, even when State Governors encouraged their wards to remain in school through subsidies allowances, following the restoration of peace by the Plateau State government,” the group alleged.
 
The group also purported that part of her plot was the provision of mass fake Army, Police and the Nigeria Security & Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC) uniforms for use by thugs to perpetuate the mayhem and compromise genuine security agencies assigned to maintain peace in the communities.
 
The group revealed that when her plan to discredit the state government failed, she forced the Chairman of Langtang North, Hon Ubandoma Laven to issue a well-publicised press statement, alleging that Boko Haram would invade Langtang through Wase Local Government, ostensibly to discredit the state government.
 
“For proper perspective, the Chairman who doubles as her Personal Assistant (PA) is the only opposition party chairman, owing to the magnanimity of Governor Simon Lalong who, against all odds, wanted to honour the memory of the elder statesman and the well-respected icon of democracy and former Governor of Plateau State, the Late Solomon Lar, who by sheer providence, is the father of Hon Beni Lar.
 
“In a classical display of ingratitude and betrayal of trust, Hon Beni Lar recruited surrogates and unsuspecting State Assembly Members to lay credence to her insidious agenda.
 
“Already, we have credible intelligence that several have fallen prey to her machinations including Hon Nanbol Listic, representing Langtang North-Central in the Plateau State House of Assembly, who will address the in the coming days,” it added.
 
The body threatened that if the security agencies did not act accordingly, it would not hesitate to mobilise massively to repeal every alleged evil plan to cause unnecessary crisis or attack in its communities.(Daily Independent)
