Three people were killed by suspected Fulani herdsmen during fresh attacks on Sunday night and yesterday morning on Tafigana and Ancha villages in Bassa Local Government Area of Plateau State.
The President of Irigwe Youth Movement, Bassa Local Government, Mr. Chinge Dodo Ayuba, who confirmed the killing in Jos, described as sad the incessant attacks on innocent villagers.
He said: “Yesterday, July 14, 2019, Fulani herdsmen attacked Tafigana village in Miango District of Irigwe Chiefdom in the evening and killed Mr Sunday Wolo and his son, Ngwe Sunday.
The assault continued this morning with another village, Ancha, attacked and a woman killed. As I’m talking to you now, more attacks are ongoing. “As a people, we are continuously under attack and nobody seems to be hearing our cries for help while killing of our people has now become a routine.” However, efforts to contact the Plateau State Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO), DSP Mathias Tyopev, to confirm the report failed as he could not be reached on his phone.
