Plateau Youths, under the aegis of Plateau Youths G17 Peace and Progressive Forum, have called on the Federal Government to secure federal roads across the country to minimise attacks on commuters.
Leader of the group, Mr John Baling, made the call at a candlelight procession on Sunday in Jos.
The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the youths organised the procession in honour of Dalep Dachiya, a 200 Level student of the University of Maiduguri, who was murdered by members of an insurgent group.
NAN also reports that Dachiya was abducted on Jan. 9, on his way to Maiduguri to resume school, and was later killed by his abductors.
Baling also called on the government and the security agencies to step up their game and end insurgency and all forms of criminality in the country.
The leader advised government to seek external support from international communities to end insurgency in the country.
