The steps are imperative, according to him in order to avoid a ripple effects of the Shi’ites protests in the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), Abuja.

“With the unfortunate incident that happened in Abuja over the IMN protest, we have taken a lot of proactive measures so that such a thing does not emanate here.

“We have engaged the Sheik who is of the Shiite Islamic sect and told him that we have a peculiar case here in Plateau.

“We have worked seriously for peace for us to be in the stage we are now, and would not want any form of procession.

“The organisation is already proscribed here in Plateau.

“These meetings are always regular, and we are always in touch with religious and traditional leaders.

“We have a closely knitted relationship, cooperation and synergy with all security agencies as well as religious and traditional leaders.

“I will advocate that other states having some security challenges could come and learn from this synergy,” he said.
