10 Killed, 5 injured in Plateau Attack

Ten persons have been confirmed dead while five others were injured in two fresh attacks carried out by gunmen in Barki Ladi Local Government Area of Plateau state.

The fresh attacks came less than one week after the Special Task force deployed to restore peace in the state evacuated over 200 persons from one of the IDP camps in Jos back to their villages which they deserted earlier as a result of frequent attacks by gunmen.

Punch gathered on Thursday that five of the victims were killed on Wednesday night while they were celebrating the Christmas season at Rawuru community of the LG while five others died after the gunmen attacked them in a hotel located at Gwol the previous day.

The spokesman for the State Police Command, DSP Mathias Terna said he was attending a security meeting when contacted over the development.

But a leader in the community, Mr Francis Chong, confirmed the fresh attack on the people to The Punch in Jos on Thursday

He said, “Yes, I can confirm to you that the attacks actually took place. What happened was that on Wednesday, seven people were moving about in Rawuru community after celebrating the Christmas party organised in the locality when they suddenly came under attack by the gunmen. Five of them died as a result of gunshot wounds while two others are still in the hospital

“Before the attack in Rawuru, five other villagers were shot and killed the previous day while they were also celebrating the season in a hotel in Gwol community. From the look of things, this is a clear case of resumption of terror attacks on the people and we are calling on the security agencies to rise up to the occasion and stop the fresh onslaught against our people.”
