Gunmen Kill 4 In Plateau

Gunmen alleged to be Fulani herdsmen yesterday killed three people at Bachit in Riyom Local Government Area in a night raid.

The gunmen shot dead a man and his wife while asleep, shot dead another and wounded several others as they tried to escape from the village during the raid.

Another man, a retired soldier was earlier on Christmas day killed at Rim in the same area while relaxing with his family by unknown gunmen.

Member representing Riyom Constituency in the Plateau State House of Assembly, Mr Daniel Dem who confirmed the killings said the mode of attack was similar to previous ones which he said confirmed that the attack was unleashed by the same group that had been terrorising people in the area.

He advised the people to be vigilant and security conscious rather than get carried away by the festive mood.

The police public relations officer in the state, Mr. Emmanuel Abuh said he was yet to get details of the attack when contacted.
