Fulani herdsmen killed 14, dozen injured in fresh Plateau attack


 Fulani herdsmen killed 14, dozen injured in fresh Plateau attack



 Over 14 persons
feared dead dozen injured in two separate fresh attacks by suspected Fulani herdsmen
in Jos South and Bassa Local Government Areas of Plateau State.



The killings came at the time when the governor of the state, Simon
Lalong, was in Beijing, China, with President Muhammadu Buhari for the
7th Summit of the Forum on China-Africa Cooperation scheduled to hold
from September 3 to 4.



The latest killings came barely 24 hours after the alarm raised by
the Executive Director of Stephanos Foundation, a civil
rights’ organisation, Mark Lipdo, of fresh plots by the herdsmen to
attack some villages in the State.



He said, “It is rumoured that the Fulani will sweep over Berom Land
on (Sunday) September 2. This was how all the past attacks were rumoured
and the security operatives took it for granted until hundreds were
wiped out, some in their sleep. Here again is another rumour.



“What will the security operatives do? Sit down do nothing until
blood is spilled!! God, arise and defend the cause of the defenseless in
the land. It is another rumour, but today rumours seem to be more
authentic than government information. So sad!!!.”



In one of the attacks which took place at a
community called Rati around Du village, close to Dogo Nahawa, the
herdsmen came on motorbikes and shot indiscriminately at the villagers
killing twelve persons on the spot.



During the second incident, the assailants were said to have laid an
ambush on their victims in Adu village in Kwall District, Bassa LGA
around 11pm and shot at their targets.



While one was killed on the spot, the second victim was said to have died on Monday morning in the hospital.
