Ten Killed, Five Injured as Fulani Herdsmen Attacks Plateau Villages

Ten persons have been confirmed dead while five others were injured in two fresh attacks carried out by Fulani Herdsmen in Barki Ladi Local Government Area (LGA) of Plateau State.

This is coming as armed Fulani Herdsmen reportedly killed six persons and also razed down over 50 houses in Sheria, Landu, Ankura and Oguma under Bassa LGA of Kogi State.

The attacks on Plateau villages came less than one week after the Special Task Force (STF) returned over 200 persons from one of the Internally Displaced Persons ( IDP) camps in Jos to their villages which they deserted earlier as a result of frequent attacks on their communities.

Five of the victims were killed last Wednesday night as they were celebrating the Christmas at Rawuru community, while five others died after the gunmen attacked them in a hotel located at Gwol the previous day.
