The Plateau State Government says it is committed to exploring all avenues towards building and sustaining peace in the state.

Director General of the State Peace Building Agency, Joseph Lengmang told online information managers in Jos that the government was working to enhance collaboration with relevant stakeholders towards achieving this goal.

Mr. Lengmang particularly sought the collaboration of online journalists, bloggers and commentators in combatting negative information.

His emphasis was mainly on hate speeches and rumours that instigate or escalate tension.

The PPBA boss had summoned online media practitioners to fashion out ways of achieving peace in the wake of the recent tensions in the state.

The tensions were caused by rising clashes in Nigeria's southeast region between the government and the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), a group demanding the cessation of the region from the Nigerian nation.
