Recent social media reports alleging that Governor Simon Lalong, President Muhammadu Buhari and a local community are plotting Jihad in the State are fake, officials say.

The 'hoax' is crafted by 'desperadoes' to not just win elections but severe relationships amongst citizens, State Information Commissioner, Yakubu Datti said, Friday.

"The promoters who failed in their bid to create crisis during the Presidential and National Assembly elections last week are planting stories meant to create distrust and suspicion," the Commissioner said in a Press Statement.

An unverified letter purportedly addressed to the Muslim community in Plateau State has for the past two days circulated on Social Media suggesting an agreement between the State Governor and the President for a political warfare against the natives in the State.

But the Information boss in the State says in the Statement that no such "unpatriotic actions" were ever taken.

The Governor's relationship with the President according to the statement has been mainly to attract development to the State.

Datti therefore warned citizens against circulating "fake news" that is injurious to societal wellbeing.
