Tragedy as four killed, six injured and homes burnt in attacks on Plateau village

Nigeria - The Guardian reports that rampaging gunmen yesterday felled four lives, injured six others and burnt several homes in Bassa council area of Plateau State.

The Forefront learned that a source in Gbra-Zongo village where the event happened revealed that the assailants, numbering about 20, invaded the settlement in the early hours of the day, shooting sporadically into the air.
Addressing journalists, chairman of Miango Youth Development Association, Nuhu Nkali, noted that the mode of the attack was similar to the previous ones in Irigwe chiefdom, adding that it was carried out without any resistance.
He said: “In this attack, four persons were killed, including a clergyman and a 10-year-old boy. The violence started at about 9:56pm (on Tuesday) till the early hours of Wednesday. The gunmen had a field day because there were no security personnel on ground to repel them. The security agents in the community were withdrawn about one month ago after two of their men were killed.”
The Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO) in the state, ASP Ubah Gabriel Obaga, who equally confirmed the death of the quartet, added that CP Isaac Akinmoyede had deployed more officers under the supervision of ACP (Operations) to restore sanity in the area.
