The Youth Leader from the affected community, Mr. Dawap Sunday Dankaka accompanied by survivors strongly denied the claims made by the Nigerian army over the supposed killing of a native. During the conference, he presented the alleged victim in an effective attempt to discredit these charges.
During his speech, Mr. Dawap Sunday Dankaka emphasised the necessity of eliminating misunderstanding about the unfortunate events in Plateau. He underlined the importance of truthful reporting in revealing the genuine character of events.
The survivors gave first-hand experiences of the recent attacks in Mangu LGA, providing a terrifying insight into the struggles that the community that was affected was facing. Their attendance emphasised how urgent it is to address the region’s security crisis and pursue justice for the victims.
Equity International provided a forum for elevating the voices of individuals who were directly affected by the violence and challenging any narratives that might not be true to the situation on the ground.
