An attack on Kumbur village, Wase Local Government Area of Plateau State, on Saturday, led to the death of five villagers and one assailant, according to reports

Confirming the attack, Chairman of Wase Local Government Council, Mr Muhamadu Zakari, told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Jos on Sunday that the attackers also injured several others.

Also confirming the attack, Media Officer of the Special Task Force (STF)Capt. Salisu Mustapha, said that the STF personnel, who rushed to scene of the attack, killed one the fleeing assailants.

Mustapha, however, said that he was not sure of the number of casualties among the villagers.

He said that Zakari was “a reliable source’’ in ascertaining how many people were affected by the violence.

According to him, Mustapha said that the attackers had wanted to use the village route to launch a heavy attack on Wase, adding that they were, however, repelled by men of the STF.

He added that peace had been restored to the affected area.

Zakari, who condemned the attack, wondered how the attack was possible “in spite of the heavy presence of security men in the area”.

He described the incident as “most unfortunate’’ since stakeholders had been deliberating on how to end the lingering hostilities.

“We only pray that God will intervene in this matter while we do everything humanly possible to restore lasting peace in the area,’’ he said.

When contacted, Mrs Felicia Anselm, the Police Public Relations Officer in Plateau, said that she had not been fully briefed on the incident.

“As soon as I get the full details, I shall get back to you,’’ she told NAN.
