    Gunmen attack Plateau communities, kill 14

    Fourteen people have been confirmed dead in two separate attacks by gunmen in Plateau State.

    It was learnt that while twelve people were killed in Sabon Layi Village, Kuru community, Jos South Local Government Area, two other persons were killed in Zogu Village, Miango community in Bassa Local Government Area of the state.

    Villagers said the attacks occurred on Sunday night while the people were sleeping.

    The lawmaker representing Jos South Local Government Area in the Plateau State House of Assembly, Fom Gwattson confirmed the killing of twelve persons in Kuru community to The PUNCH in Jos on Monday

    Gwattson said, “Some gunmen last night attacked my constituency and killed twelve persons in Sabon Layi community. I have just been informed of the development and this is completely unacceptable.”

    The National President of the Irigwe Development Association, Ezekiel Bini who also confirmed the killing of two persons in Zogu Village added that two other persons were injured during the attack by gunmen in the community.

    Bini said that one of those injured had been rushed to the Jos University Teaching Hospital while the second person was moved to another hospital in Miango for treatment.

    He said, “Two persons died during the attack last night, while two were injured. It’s unfortunate that we have continued to bury our people on every attack by gunmen without anything being done to stop the killings by the authorities.”

    He, however, said that the killings had been reported to the security agents.

    Spokesman of the State Police Command, Ubah Ogaba, when contacted said that 10 persons were killed during the attack in Jos South LGA.

    Ogaba said, “We had an incident in Jos South LGA. 10 persons, unfortunately, lost their lives but I am yet to get reports on the attack in Bassa.”

    According to him, “The Plateau State Police Command received a report that 10 persons were shot dead in a drinking joint at Sabon Layi, Kuru in Jos South LGA by yet to be identified gunmen who drove in with a Hilux and shot sporadically.

    “Personnel of the Command and the military have been deployed in the affected area.

    “The Commissioner of Police has ordered an immediate investigation to unravel the circumstances surrounding the killing and to bring the perpetrators of that dastardly act to book.”
