Nine killed in midnight attack on Riyom, Plateau

The Police in Plateau said 9 persons were killed on Tuesday night attack on Angwan-Waran in Riyom Local Government of the State.

Mr Chris Olakpe, the Commissioner of Police in Plateau, in Jos on Wednesday said that the attackers had fled the area before the arrival of security agents.

He said the police and other personnel of the Special Task Force (STF) maintaining the peace in Plateau, had stepped in and restored normalcy to the area. Continue...




“To check against recurrence, the police and the STF have deployed a team of security personnel to the village, while efforts are on to apprehend the attackers’’, he added.

The commissioner advised members of the public to help security agencies with any piece of information that could lead to the arrest of the attackers.

STF Media Officer, Capt. Salisu Mustapha, who also confirmed the attack, said the invaders also burnt down houses in the village before escaping.

He, however, did not give the number of houses burnt.

Mustapha said the STF had arrested three persons found with arms and ammunition suspected to have been used for the attack.

“We are interrogating the suspects’’, he said.

Hmmmm so much trouble for a country.
With each passing day,human life looses its value in our country. It takes little or nothing for people to kill their kind .

Don't blame Jonathan for all the mayhem and killing going on it the north. The northern elders forum should sort them self out. They know there sponsors. I am least bothered as far as the heat remains in the north.

Please are you sure it is still the same Nigeria that is witnessing these massive loss of life. Little by little that was how it started in countries like Syria and Iraq. I just hope it doesn't get to that level by God's grace...
