Fresh Plateau Attack Claims Four


Four persons have been killed in a fresh attack in Plateau State.

The victims, who are all male, were killed by suspected herdsmen on Monday at Renwienku village of Miango District in Bassa Local Government Area of the North-Central State.

President of Irigwe Development Association, Mr Robert Ashi Dodo said the assailants invaded the village in the early hours of the day and inflicted injuries on the victims – who were mainly middle-aged –  which led to their death

The incident, according to the Irigwe leader, was compounded when the mourners were attacked on their way to bury the dead.

He, however, said they buried the victims following the intervention of security agencies.

But the Fulani community has denied any involvement in the incident, and accused their Irigwe neighbours of killing a herder  –  who was pasturing –  during the weekend.

The Miyetti Allah leader in the state, Nura Mohammad described the incident as unfortunate in spite of the ongoing peace efforts in the state.

The police in a statement from the command Public Relations Officer Gabriel Ubah confirmed the  incidents at Kpachudu and Reweinku villages in Miango district that led to the death of yhe four persons.

He said more personnel have been deployed to the areas to restore peace.

According to him, investigations have commenced to fish out perpetrators of the dastardly act.
