Crisis: Plateau, Kaduna Leaders Trained On Early Warnings 

In order to tackle the incessant crisis between communities in Plateau State and Southern Kaduna areas, their leaders have been trained on how to detect early warnings.
At a two-day training workshop on early warning and early response for troubled communities in Kaura and Kauru LGAs in Kaduna State and Bassa and Riyom Local Government Areas in Plateau State, participants have been called upon to brace up towards mitigating future conflicts.
The training which is a follow-up to the series of engagements with the Fulanis and Takad, Chawai, Irigwe and Aten, including the Hausa Communities, is funded by the United States Institute for Peace, in collaboration with the Kaduna State Peace Commission and the Plateau State Peace Agency.
Declaring the two day training open, the Executive Vice Chairman, Kaduna State Peace Commission, Dr. Saleh Momale, reminded the participants on the need to put away their differences and work as a team towards fighting their common enemy.
He noted with dismay how criminal elements hide under the guise of religion and ethnicity to cause crisis, with the aim of achieving their selfish benefits.
Participants where trained on the Nature and Dynamics of Conflicts affecting their Communities, Early warning Signs of Conflicts within Communities and Understanding the Concept of Conflict Early Warning and Early Response .
They are expected to step down what they have learnt to their various communities to achieve the set objectives.
