In response to the tragic attacks that led to the loss of over 200 lives in Plateau state, specifically in Bokkos, Mangu, and Barkin Ladi local government areas, President Bola Tinubu has given approval for the immediate establishment of a Military Barracks.

The Barracks will be located in Miller Farm (Gada Biyu) Mbar District of Bokkos local government area.

President Tinubu directed General Christopher Musa, the Chief of Defense Staff, to coordinate the implementation of this initiative to address the security challenges facing the region.

Former governor of Plateau state, Joshua Dariye had made efforts to facilitate the establishment of the Barracks to halt the continuous attacks that have resulted in loss of life, widespread looting, and destruction of property.

Once operational, the Barracks will swiftly intervene to address the relentless attacks and killings in Bokkos, Mangu, Riyom, Barkin Ladi, and neighbouring Nasarawa state.

This initiative is especially crucial following the simultaneous sacking of certain communities, widespread looting, and loss of life on Christmas Eve of 2023 in Bokkos, Mangu, and Barkin Ladi local government areas.
