Jos — Gbong Gwom Jos and Chairman Plateau State Traditional Council of Chiefs Da Jacob Gyang Buba has says leaders at all levels should be held responsible for any attack in their respective domain.

The monarch said in Riyom in the ongoing sensitization peace tour organized by Plateau State Special Task Force (STF), saying the best way to tackle the present security challenges is that in any location where there is an attack both traditional and political leaders should be arrested and faced the wrath of the law.

He said that "for those of us that are called leaders we must rise up to our responsibilities and also the people too must respect constituted authority for us to resolve this problems because you can never be good if you don't know how to follow".
