Two more villages in Barkin-Ladi Local Government Area have been attacked by gunmen who reduced them to rubbles.
The attack was confirmed Tuesday evening by member representing Riyom Constituency in the Plateau State House of Assembly, Mr. Daniel Dem who gave the names of the villages as Tse and Shong.
“I can authoritatively confirm to you that as I am talking to you now, the same gunmen from top of the mountains have attacked two more villages.
The two villages, Tse and Shong have been reduced to ruin with no house standing. The gunmen came in their usual style with sporadic shooting.
“The villagers were scared and they ran out of their houses and the gunmen set the houses ablaze rendering them homeless and increasing the number of displaced people he said.
He said about 140 corpses were strewn all over the area now because people are afraid to go and pick them up for burial since Sunday’s attack on the burial procession.
Meanwhile, the Plateau State Government has relaxed the curfew imposed in four local government areas of the state by five hours. It announced after a State Security Council meeting on Tuesday that the curfew would now be from 6pm to 7am.
