- Plateau state seems to be under siege by armed herdsmen
- The marauders returned again to kill three youths in Riyom local government area of the state
- Governor Simon Lalong recently directed that killers in the state must be fished out at all cost
Again, unknown gunmen suspected to be armed herdsmen have attacked and killed three youths and injured one other in Tyana village in Riyom local government area of Plateau state.
A member of the Plateau state House of Assembly representing Riyom state constituency, Hon. Timothy Datong confirmed the attack.
“On Sunday night four youths were attacked by unknown gunmen in my constituency Riyom, three were killed while one sustained an injury, I am on my way to the village now,” he told New Telegraph.
Plateau continues to witness wanton violence and destruction perpetrated by armed herdsmen.
Governor Simon Lalong had directed that killers in the state must be fished out at all cost but security agencies are yet to apprehend one single suspect.
In the past few weeks, armed herdsmen have been attacking helpless communities and road users in the north-central region almost unchallenged.
On Sunday, January 26, armed herdsmen killed 14 people in Kwatas village in Bokkos local government area of Plateau state.
On Saturday, January 25, armed herdsmen killed a farmer and a policeman in Owan community, Ovia north-east local government area of Edo state.
