Again, gunmen have killed four persons in the Nkienzha and Teegbe communities, Miango district, Irigwe chiefdom of Bassa local government area of Plateau State.
The incident occurred at about 11 p.m. on Sunday and Saturday nights in the two communities as one house was set ablaze in the Nkienzha community.
Neither the State Police Command nor Operation Safe Haven, OpSH, confirmed the incidents, as their spokespersons could not be reached at the time of the report, but Davidson Malison, the outgoing National Publicity Secretary of the Irigwe Development Association, IDA, confirmed and added that one person was also injured.
He said, “On Sunday, at about 11 p.m., the bloodsuckers attacked the Nkienzha community; three people were killed and one injured as they set ablaze a house. The Irigwe nation sees the resurgence of attacks and killings as callous and barbaric and cautions the perpetrators to immediately put a halt on the mayhem being unleashed in the land.
“We equally call on the constituted authorities to do the needful to restore normalcy in the land so that we can continue our activities without hitches. The Nkienzha attack occurred after another bright Rigwe youth was killed on Saturday (10/2/2024) at Teegbe village of Miango District with another car ambush on Friday (9/2/2024), where the vehicle was burned down with one person sustaining injury.
“Those killed at the Nkienzha community are 50-year-old Gawan Zhwe, 48-year-old Lydia Yakubu, and 23-year-old Nuhu Yakubu. Zhime Yakubu was injured. At the Taegbe community, 32-year-old Musa Wolo was killed on Saturday.”
