He made this known on Thursday at Shendam Mini Stadium during the coronation and upgrade of three chiefdoms in Shendam Local Government Area.

“People are saying they should come to Plateau because there is no death penalty here, but it is no longer business as usual here.

He urged the youth to respect their traditional leaders and refuse to be lured to banditry, cattle rustling and other social vices.

Lalong said his government would soon unveil empowerment programmes for the youth.
