Al-Mustapha Visits Jos, Seeks Bringing Peace to Plateau

The former Chief Security Officer to late Head of State, Sani Abacha, Major Hamza Al-Mustapha has pledged to help bring an end to the crisis that has rocked Jos and other Plateau communities.
‪Major Al-Mustapha made the appeal in Jos during a peace parley with youth of the state at the Hill station hotel on November 21, 2013, Thursday.
‪"Back in the 80′s, Plateau was home for all. I am calling on the people of the state to tolerate each other. I am committed to ensuring that lasting peace is restored back to the state.
‪"I am appealing to all communities in Plateau State irrespective of tribe, religion, to eschew bitterness and forgive themselves for peace to reign. My mission at all times is to ensure a peaceful Nigeria,"the former Chief Security Officer said.
‪When asked why he visited the state, the former soldier, who spent 13 years in jail while on trial for murder, said "my mission here in the state is that of peace and nothing else."
‪"I and the youth and the entire people of Plateau State are going to work together with all stakeholders to consolidate on the fragile peace in the state."
While addressing the youth, the former soldier promised to provide job opportunities for them.
‪While in Jos, Major Al-Mustapha visited the secretariat of the Christian Association of Nigeria, CAN, and that of Jamaatu Nasir Islam, JNI, to solicit the spiritual support of the clergy for peace to return to Plateau. He also paid a condolence visit to the family of the late former Plateau governor, Solomon Lar.
It would be recalled that Mr. Al-Mustaphawas released from jailin July 2013, after the Court of Appeal ruled he was not involved in the murder of late Kudirat Abiola.
