Nigerian News: Many Killed As Gunmen Invade Villages In Plateau State (Bloody Photos)


The killings in Nigeria continues, as fresh attack hits Plateau state. See bloody photos below.

Many villagers were killed during the weekend’s attacks in villages in Barkin Ladi, Mangu and Riyom local government areas of Plateau State. Reports say more than 100 bodies have so far been picked while over 200 people are currently receiving treatments in various hospitals in the State. 

It was gathered that heavily armed gunmen invaded the affected areas including Exland, Gindin Akwati, Ruku, Nghar, Kura Falls and Kakuruk all in Gashish district as well as Rakok, Kok and Razat villages all in Ropp district of the local government area, shooting sporadically, killing people, injuring others and setting structures ablaze.

Similar attack had caused heavily barricade of roads along Mangu Halle in Mangu local government area where youths protested the incessant killings in the area and some mourners on Saturday escaped death along Barkin Ladi – Bokkos road as they were bombarded by gunshots by the herders who occupied the expressway.

Security agencies were on Sunday searching and evacuating corpses and rescuing the injured and the Spokesman of Operation Safe Haven, Major Adam Umar told Vanguard, “There was an incident yesterday (Saturday) in Barkin Ladi, some attackers stormed the general area and started shooting sporadically.

“The sound of the gunshots attracted our personnel, they immediately mobilized towards the area the gunshots were coming from, on reaching there, they came under heavy fire. The incident is still ongoing though under control; there are casualties because there were gunshots and fire fight between our personnel and the attackers but for now, the number is not ascertained.

”Many people are said to be trapped in the bushes and attacks are still being launched in some yet to be identified villages in the area.

But the State Government in a statement by its Commissioner for Information and Communication , Yakubu Dati has said it is deeply pained that “despite concerted efforts which had led to the restoration of relative peace across the state, some unpatriotic elements are bent on disrupting the gains so far made. ”The statement condemned the attacks, assuring government had mobilised the “full compliments of security forces that are restoring normalcy in the affected areas and the environs.”
