Six Dead , Three Wounded In Plateau Gunmen Attack




(AFRICAN EXAMINER) –No fewer than six people were killed by gunmen and three wounded in a fresh attack at Wereng community in Riyom Local Government Area of Plateau State.

The attack happened days after eight people who were mining at a neighbouring Kuru community were killed in the same council area.

The attack in Wereng community is coming a few days after gunmen attacked Ndar community in Bokkos LGA and kidnapped four varsity students who later regained their freedom.

The lawmaker representing Riyom LGA in the state House of Assembly, Timothy Dantong confirmed the killing of six of his constituents to our correspondent in Jos on Friday.



The lawmaker said, “We have been hearing that there will be an attack in the community but the people went about their normal business because they did nothing wrong. But I just woke up this morning (Friday) to hear of the killing of six of my people by gunmen who attacked Wereng community last night (Thursday).

“When I made inquiries, I discovered that the armed attackers actually came around 10pm and killed six people while three others who were injured during the attack have been rushed to the hospital.

“Right now, the people are digging the graves to bury those who were killed in the attack.”
