1 min read
Six persons were reported killed after gunmen attacked a village at Miango district in Bassa Local Government Area of Plateau State. The deceased – three males, two females and an infant – were said to have been killed and others injured when the assailants attacked Tegbe village on Saturday after the state government had imposed a 12-hour curfew on the local government. Commissioner of Police in the state, Mr Undie Adie, who was on an assessment tour of the village, described the attack as a shock considering curfew in the area. According to him, the gunmen took advantage of the restriction to unleash terror on three villages with houses burnt, lives lost and people injured. An eyewitness told Channels Television that the attackers came at about midnight and shot sporadically, an act he said caught the people unaware. He added that managed to escape the scene while the attackers set some houses on ablaze, as well as barns where harvested foodstuff was preserved. UCJ, UNILORIN.
