20 Killed In Plateau Herdsmen Attack

- Advertisement -

There was a fresh attack on Acha village of Miago district of Bassa Local Government Council in Plateau North Senatorial District of Plateau State by suspected Herdsmen which left 20 persons dead and scores of the villagers injured.

Our source gathered that the attacks took place in the early hours of Friday morning leading to several people injured and rushed to hospital in the locality for urgent treatment.

The injured were said to have suffered from various degrees of injuries they incurred from the attack.

Sources in the area said Fulani Herdsmen for several weeks have been lurking around in the locality alleging that one Herdsman was kidnapped in the vicinity.

People in the affected locality challenged the state Governor Simon Lalong to deploy security agents to the restive community to avoid loss of more lives, blaming the killings on poor security presence in Bassa Local Government Council of the state.

It would be recalled that barely two weeks ago, five persons were gun down in Bokkos Local Government Council of the state due to what security operatives called activities of armed men  in the council while in neighboring Barkin Ladi Local Government Council Area, uneasy calm pervades the area over recent happenings in other councils of Plateau North senatorial district.

Plateau State Government spokesman, Dan Majang in a press release said the state Governor Barr Simon Lalong has gone into dialogue with warring groups and security agencies and they are on top of the situation at Bassa Local Government Council in the state.
