Gunmen kill five in Plateau community

No fewer than seven persons reportedly died after gunmen attacked Kerang community in Mangu Local Government Area of Plateau State.

The attack in the community occurred despite a 24-hour curfew imposed on the LGA by the government following similar attacks by gunmen that claimed several lives in neighbouring communities last week.

A resident of Kerang community, Joseph Kabir, who confirmed the latest attacks to The PUNCH in Jos on Tuesday, said, among those killed were a man and his wife.

He added that the victims were given a mass burial on Tuesday morning

The resident said, “I can confirm to you that five people, including a man and his wife, were killed by terrorists between 5:00 and 8:00 pm on June 26, 2023 in Sohon Kerang Community of Kerang District Mangu Local Government.

“We thought that with the declaration of curfew by the government, security agents would be able to stop the terrorists from killing innocent residents.

“However, by 5:00pm, the gunmen came to the community located behind the SWAN Water Company Ltd, located in Kerang village and opened killing the victims.

“They hid in the bushes after carrying out the evil act. It was this morning the bodies of the dead were discovered by mourning. This morning, June 27 2023 the victims were mass buried."

Alabo Alfred, Plateau State Police Command spokesman was yet to issue a public statement about the incident at the time of writing this report.
