NO FEWER than eight persons have been reportedly killed and two others injured when bandits  attacked Cinke and Zarama villages of Kwall District at Rigwe Chiefdom of Bassa Local Government Area of Plateau State.

  The attack, which took place, yesterday night, left eight persons dead and some inflicted gunshots injuries.

  National Publicity Secretary, Irigwe Development Association (IDA), Davidson Malison confirmed the incident and said several persons have been displaced.

  He gave names of those killed as Irah Weyi 48yrs, Elizabeth Weyi 21yrs, Ladi Mandu Mary Gya 4yrs, Esther La’aji 5yrs, Titus Agah 40, Aweh Ngwe 47 and a Corporal, Sunday Dada.

  Malison said Munto Gado and Sarah Weyi were fatally injured.

  “Residents of Cinke and Zarama villages of Kwall District, Rigwe Chiefdom of Bassa LGA, Plateau State, woke up on the left hand side of the bed following the unprovoked attacks launched by Fulani Militia on Thursday May 5,2022 in the aforesaid areas resulting in the Killing of eight (8) persons and injuring of two persons.

The attack is no doubt the continuous perpetration of terror and mayhem in Rigwe land in an attempt to forcefully eject the peace-loving Rigwe people from their ancestral land as well as complete annihilation of the entire tribe. The attack has become a daily affair as the marauders have assumed an ‘immuned’ set of people and are feeling untouchable daring the authorities concerned,” he said.

  Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO), Gabriel Ogaba, could not be reached as at the time of filing this report.
