Augustin Pwakim assured IDPs in Jos South of restoring peace between Irigwe and Berom
The management committee Chairman of Jos South LGA Augustin Pwakim has assured the Internally Displaced Persons IDP in Vwang of his administration’s determination to see that they return to their homes within the shortest possible time. Pwakim gave the assurance when he visited the IDP camp in Jos South.
The communal clash between the Irigwe and Berom ethnic group reported some weeks ago has resulted to leaving some people displaced mostly women and children who are now living in various camps within Vwang district of Jos South LGA. The chairman Augustin Pwakim who was full of emotion described the incident as unfortunate adding that both tribes have long standing relationship and wonder why misunderstanding will come between them to the point of both sides losing lives and properties.
Chairman Vwang Development Association Gabriel Tungung explained that over a thousand men and women including children are in separate camps and expressed fear that such a number may not be captured during the census test on the way, more worrisome according to Tungung is the fact that the farming season is near and the IDPs who are mostly farmers needs to returned home.
