At least three farmers were killed in Nkiendonwro village of Miango District of Bassa Local Government Area of Plateau State, on Friday morning.


Madison Davidson, spokesperson of Irigwe ethnic group, said the deceased were on their way to the farm when they ran into an ambush laid by gunmen.

He said the incident had been reported to the DPO of Bassa LGA.

“This is again another horrific and traumatic situation the Irigwe nation has been confined to today. Very sad that these marauders have continued to kill us in their evil plans of taking over our ancestral land which in God we trust will never see the light.

“The Government and the security personnel should wake up to their duty and ensure that the terror being unleashed on the innocent people is stopped or curtailed,” he added.

When contacted, the spokesman of the state police command, ASP Ubah Gabriel, confirmed the incident, saying police personnel had been deployed to prevent further attacks.

On October 4, three persons were killed while three others injured during an attack at Hukke village of Miango District.

Herders and people of Irigwe often blame each other for attacks and counter attacks in villages of Bassa.
