11 Declared Wanted Over Plateau Attacks

Operation Safe Haven (OPSH), the special task force saddled with maintaining peace in Plateau State and environs, has declared 11 persons suspected to be behind the recent attacks in the state wanted.

The Deputy Commissioner of Police and Deputy Commander of OPSH, Terzungwe Iyua, made the declaration at a press conference in Jos, the Plateau State capital, on Friday, May 31, 2024.


According to Iyua, the suspected persons were declared wanted after a series of intelligence gathering using technology.

He said the wanted persons were suspected to be behind the Christmas Eve attacks and other recent attacks in Bokkos, Mangu, and Barkin-Ladi Local Government Areas of Plateau State.

The DCP said: “In line with the mandate of OPSH, we have not rested on our oars in efforts to bring the perpetrators of all heinous crimes to face justice.

“In this regard, we have sustained intelligence-led operations, which led to the neutralisation in contact with some of the perpetrators, as well as the arrest of most of the criminals, who participated in some of the attacks.

“For those still at large, over time we exploited the use of technology to conduct forensic examination which revealed their identities.

“Our efforts to ensure lasting peace have been occasionally derailed by activities of enemies of peace and this is why we are calling on the public to help us with useful information on their whereabouts.”

The deputy commander listed the wanted persons to include Muhammadu (also known as MP), Muhammed, Rabiu Ibrahim, Buba Sobe, Senfos Inusa, and Nahaska Boderi.

Others are Habu Mohammadu, Dudi Mohammadu, Ja’afaru Matakala, Hassan Waje, and Sanusi Dafor.
