The Plateau Police Command on Sunday confirmed that six persons dead and five others were injured in a Saturday night attack on Taagbe, a village in Bassa Local Government Area.

Its Public Relations Officer, Terna Tyopev told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Jos that the attackers, who invaded the village at midnight, also burnt down 10 houses.

He said that those injured had been taken to various hospitals in Jos.

NAN reports that the killings took place a day after Governor Simon Lalong imposed a dusk-to-dawn curfew on the local government area as part of measures to curtail the attacks on the villagers.

Lalong had said that the action became necessary “in view of recurring incidences of attacks in the area.” (NAN)
