Plateau Killings: Death Toll Rises To 85

The number of deaths recorded in the simultaneous attack on communities in the Mangu Local Government Area (LGA) of Plateau State on Tuesday has risen to 85.

The National President of Mwaghavul Development Association, Joseph Gwankat, disclosed this while speaking to journalists on Wednesday after a security meeting wi

th the State Governor at the Palace of the Mishkaham Mwaghavul, His Royal Highness, Da John Putmang Hirse.

According to him, the attacks left him wondering if the government was doing its responsibility of protecting lives and property.

His Royal Highness, Da John Putmang Hirse, had explained that the invaders believed to be Fulani Herdsmen, came with sophisticated weapons and unleashed terror on his subjects.

The District Head of Bwai, Da Gabriel G Gusat, also narrated that conflict broke in his domain when Fulani men in the locality attacked and killed one of his subjects who approached a herder and complained of the destruction of his banana plantation by the herder’s cattle.

He noted that as a result of the conflict over 30 people were killed in Fungzai with a cumulative number of nearly 50 people in 10 villages.

Women whose husbands were brutally killed in the attack stormed the Palace of the Mishkaham Mwaghavul, wailing and seeking justice for their loved ones.

Governor Simon Lalong, who was represented by the Deputy Governor, Professor Sonni Tyoden, prevailed on the villagers to cooperate with security agencies to fish out the culprits, noting that government is concerned about the security situation and is doing everything possible to ensure the lives and property of citizens are protected.
