18 killed, 6 injured as herdsmen raid Plateau villages again

There’s fresh bloodbath among the Irigwe people in Ancha village in Rigwe Chiefdom of Bassa Local Government Area of Plateau State after 18 people were killed and six others injured in renewed attack by suspected herdsmen.

A spokesperson for the Irigwe Development Association, Davidson Malison, said on Wednesday that the attack was carried out on Tuesday night by suspected herdsmen who invaded the village and besieged it for over two hours.

According to Mr Malison, the assailants raided unchecked by any security operative, leading to the destruction of twenty-four (24) households with several properties such as vehicles, motorcycles, harvested crops and several other valuable items, being carted away by the attackers.

Governor Simon Lalong has described the incident as another sad tale in the unending violent attacks in the area which has continued despite several measures taken by government.

The governor ordered security agencies to ensure that the attackers are fished out at all cost.
