Captain of the Super Eagles, Ahmed Musa, has called for peace in his home state, Plateau, following the ongoing killings in the North Central state.
Taking to his Instagram page on Thursday, Musa called for unity in the state.
He wrote, “A heartfelt plea for peace in Plateau. Dear Plateau family and Nigerians as a whole.
“Our state is hurting, and we need to come together. The fights, the killings– it’s too much. We are all one big family, no matter our religion. Most families in Plateau have both Christians and Muslims. We should be celebrating our differences, not fighting because of them.
“Let’s ask our leaders to focus on what really matters: keeping us safe and bringing back the peace we once had. Plateau used to be known as the Home of Peace and Tourism. We want that back.
“So, let’s stand side by side, no matter our religion. Hold hands, pray, and ask for peace. We can do this if we all work together.”
Armed men had on Wednesday launched a fresh attack in the state, killing no fewer than 30 victims in Kwahaslalek village in the Mangu Local Government Area of the state.
The latest attack is happening one month after 195 persons were massacred in the Barkin Ladi, Mangu, and Bokkos LGAs of the state last Christmas Eve.
About 221 houses were burnt, including other property worth millions of naira.
