Nigeria's Minister for Youths and Sports, Barr. Solomon Dalung says citizens in Plateau State must put behind "bitter" experiences and embrace love and forgiveness to progress.

In a short peace broadcast currently circulating on radio stations and online platforms, Dalung condemned 'incessant, silent killings' in communities in the State calling on securities to hunt down their masterminds.

"I condemn all incessant, silent killings whether on highways or in homes," he said while pleading for peaceful coexistence among the different ethno-religious groups in the state.

He appealed to citizens to support government in its quest to build peace and provide Democratic dividends by eschewing all forms of violence and criminality.

Dalung had earlier shared a note on his Facebook timeline appealing for peace, during last week's resurgence of violent conflicts in parts of Jos the Plateau State capital.

He has previously shared series of posts and comments on the need to be peaceful and eschew violence as the means to societal growth.
