3 confirmed killed in a Fresh Plateau attacks


At least three persons have been confirmed killed in renewed clashes in Maiyanga district of Bassa Local Government Area of Plateau State.

New Telegraph learnt that the victims were waylaid and butchered by gunmen on Monday as they were returning from Kwall also in Bassa.

A resident of Maiyanga community, Mr Danlami Dangu, said that the incident occurred around 7 pm.

“The people were killed at Maiyanga while returning from Kwall around 7 O’ clock on Monday evening. The killers used machetes, probably to avoid attracting the attention of men of the STF stationed in Maiyanga about two km from the location of the attack.”

He gave the names of the victims as Bala Ruhuwie, Gawah Gudu and Na’ago (fnu).

Our correspondent also gathered that the efforts of the soldiers stationed in the area helped to avert a reprisal.

When contacted, the Spokesman of the special task force on security in Plateau, Operation Safe Haven (OPSH), Maj. Samson Zhakom, said he was yet to be briefed by the sector commander.

He promised to get in touch with our correspondent as soon as he gets information on the incident, but as at the time of writing he was yet to do so.
