Yemi Osinbajo, on Monday, visited Plateau following attacks that left scores of people dead.
He said that Special Forces have been deployed to restore peace in the state.
“The Inspector General of Police has deployed more personnel to Plateau and the Chief of Defence Staff has announced this morning that Special Forces will be deployed to Plateau.
“The Special Forces will complement the Operation Safe Haven’s effort that has been keeping peace in the state,” he said.
The vice president expressed sadness over the development.
“The president has said in his statement that whatever it takes, those that committed the heinous crime will not only be arrested but made to publicly face justice,” he said.
He said that the Federal Government was taken aback because in the last three years, Plateau had become an example of how to restore peace.
Osibanjo urged all leaders to show restraint in what they say and do.
