Newly elected Chairman of Bassa LGA, Plateau State, Chindo Gona has vowed to fight insecurity and guarantee safety of citizens.

This follows violent protests by opposition groups in the council and other parts of the state after the declaration of the results of last week's Local Government elections in the state.

The results which favoured the ruling All Progressives Congress party were objected by the opposition party supporters who burned and destroyed properties in violent protests.

The LGA has equally witnessed violent attacks by suspected herdsmen, leading several deaths and displacements.

The new LG boss however aims to unite all groups within the LGA and ensure that peace returns to the communities.

His first priority he said would be to address all issues arising from the just concluded elections that led to him emerging winner. 

The right channel to addressing grievances he said is the law courts, calling against sponsoring protests by "thug", which he feared could draw the council back.
