No less than six persons have reportedly been killed off in a fresh attack by suspected Fulani herdsmen in a Plateau State community.
A report by Punch Metro has shown that barely 24 hours after the imposition of a curfew by Governor Simon Lalong, gunmen suspected to be Fulani herdsmen have killed over six people in Bassa Local Government Area, with several houses burnt.
The incident was said to have happened on Saturday night in Taagbe village, near Kent Academy in Bassa LGA and lasted for many hours.
The attack followed reported threats of attacks in a community near Jos Wild Life Park, about five kilometres away from Taagbe village.
A community leader and eyewitness revealed that the attack was one of the deadliest in recent times.
He said, “God should intervene and save us from these Fulani boys. During the attack, they came in several numbers, swooped on the villagers at midnight and struck.
