The Sole Administrator of the Local Government, Mr Habila Dung, announced the cancellation when he spoke with members of the party in Barkin-Ladi.

He said he had a meeting with relevant stakeholders and reached a decision to cancel the primaries, adding that the party would select its candidates in the area by consensus.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the primaries were held in other local governments except in Wase and Jos North, where such exercise was earlier cancelled by the state government due to security challenge.

The Police Public Relations Officer in Plateau, DSP. Felicia Ansalem, who confirmed the attack, gave the names of the affected communities as Rawuru, Tasu, Foron and Gurabok.

She said many people died during the attacks while several others were injured.

“We cannot give the exact number of the casualties yet as our men are collating the figures,’’ Ansalem said. (NAN)
