Breaking: Gunmen invade Plateau, open fire on villagers, kill six, injure many
Fresh attack on Thursday night claimed six lives as gunmen opened fire on some villagers at Wereng village, Riyom local government area of Plateau State, killing six and injuring three villagers.
The attack occurred at the time villagers returned from their day’s businesses and were preparing to retire for the night when sporadic gunshots jolted them
Before the incident, there were rumours being circulated that the villagers may be attacked any moment but it was unclear if security agencies acted on the information.
Wereng has consistently been under attack in over a decade now and all appeals for the dastardly act to end have been rebuffed by the attackers.
