There is a clearing and present danger that the insecurity being worked for by the Plateau State Government led by Governor Simon Bako Lalong, may soon be breached, owing to, overt plans by some lawless and unconcerned Non-state actors, who are plotting to build a Mosque around the Polo Club in the hub of Christian dominated communities.

It is a fact that, the residential areas around the Polo Club in Jos, is highly dominated by Plateau State indigenes and other citizens that are Christians by faith.

Secondly, most of the past crises that had rocked Jos-North Local Government Area (LGA) from 2001-2012, had recorded the mini prayer ground at Polo Club caught in the middle and has always been rooted from its foundation.

REALITY had reported in the past, how the communities around the Club had risen with anger, whenever they are rudely surprised by steps to actualize the rebuilding of mini prayer ground to a complete Mosque.

Each time these steps are reported of the attempt to build the Mosque by the fence of the Club, no member of the Executives of the Club or those in authority in the state, have come to deny or make statements to explain the reason(s) why the sands, blocks and other building materials and men are assembled apart from the contractors and their workmen, who would just disappear or stay off site.


Recent investigations by REALITY, which the Governor of the state, the State Government and security operatives need to know is that, there are strong plans to test the might of the community again, as plans are on the way to build a solid Mosque within the fence of the Polo Club Jos.

Only this time, REALITY finding reveals that, the plotters are currently negotiating with a businessman to execute the plan, and build the Mosque, “as a private project”.

This investigation is been reported in order to stem the consequences of such plans, maintain the existing peace and stop the violence in the state.
