Akans said: “The working committee, an arm of the Plateau Caretaker Committee at its emergency meeting held Friday evening at the party’s secretariat, reviewed the unfortunate incident that took place at the secretariat.
“Some group of rascals, mischievously constituted themselves into a caretaker committee, which is an affront to national leadership of our party, under the leadership of Prince Uche Secondus.
“The state leadership of the party frown at this decedents and therefore, approved their immediate suspension from the party.
“Seven of the affected persons are: Nandom Penap Exodus, Godwin W. Bedir, Akims Mamot, Mrs Asabe Dareng, Nathaniel Dakas, Jecob Dashe and Alhaji Kabiru Musa,” he said.
Akans further said that the group’s attempt was not only laughable and mischievous, but infantile and an act of lawlessness to the extreme which the party could not condone.
He also announced the setting up of a seven-man disciplinary committee to look into the activities of the suspended members.
