The attack on Danda Chugwi in Jos South Local Government was labelled a ruse to sow discord by Plateau Governor Simon Lalong.
Speaking on Monday, the governor denounced the incident in which some people were killed and injured.
Lalong directed security forces to arrest and prosecute those behind the attacks according to the laws of the land.
“Security agencies including the Police, Operation Safe Haven, DSS, Operation Rainbow, have been tasked to work with the local intelligence and ensure that those behind this wicked act are fished out,” he said
He sympathized with the affected families and directed the State Emergency Management Agency with the Plateau Peace Building Agency to ensure that immediate relief was given to those affected and the community.
The governor urged residents to cooperate with security agencies, the traditional institution, community leaders, and other community security architecture in exposing criminals.
