AS a way to stem the spate of killings in Plateau State, President Goodluck Jonathan has directed the Chief of Defence Staff (CDS), Air Marshal Oluseyi Petinrin, to move into the state and take full charge of the security situation.
He has charged the Defence chief to use all means necessary to put an immediate end to the rising cases of killings in parts of the state, while also directing the Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF), Senator Anyim Pius Anyim, to bring forward for review all pending reports of committees on the Plateau crisis.

The decisions followed a meeting of the National Security Council presided over by the president at the State House, Abuja, on Monday.
A presidency statement issued by the Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, Dr Reuben Abati, in Abuja, said the directive was in line with the determination of the president to ensure the full security of life and property in the country.
