The Council boss Naantuam further added that lasting peace has been restored to the council ,

“As I speak to you at the moment people are going about their normal business “.

Those rumours are pure Lies ,there is no how our Governor of Plateau state ,Simon Lalong would install an emir in Shendam local government council, so I am calling on citizens of the state to disregard the fake news,he added .
