3 Killed By Gunmen In Plateau


Three people were last night killed by gunmen alleged to be Fulani herdsmen at Bachit in Riyom Local Government Area in a raid.

The gunmen shot dead a man and his wife while asleep, shot dead another and wounded several others as they tried to escape from the village during the raid.

Member representing Riyom Constituency in the Plateau State House of Assembly, Mr Daniel Dem who confirmed the killings said the mode of attack was similar to previous ones which he said confirmed that the attack was unleashed by the same group that had been terrorising people in the area.

He therefore advised the people to be vigilant and security conscious rather than get carried away by the festive mood. [VN]
