ARMED ATTACK

 


PLATEAU STATE

Plateau attacks: Over 90 killed, 70
abducted, scores injured, more than 100 homes burnt.

Following the attack on some communities in Kanam, Bassa and Barkin Ladi LGAs of Plateau State, over 90 people are feared to have been killed, over 70 abducted, scores injured and
more than 100 homes set ablaze in a week.

DAILY POST gathered from locals in the aforementioned council that Kukawa, Gyanbahu, Dungur and Keram villages were the communities attacked, that suspected bandits have killed over
78 people, over 70 abducted and over 100 homes set ablaze, all in Kanam LGA of the state.

According to a resident of one of the affected villages, Bala Adam, the incident occurred around 3pm on Sunday, saying, “Gunmen came around 3pm and started shooting sporadically,
it was unbelievable, as if it was a dream.

“We are terrified and traumatized, we don’t know their mission or reason behind such an act, in broad daylight; I have not experienced this kind of situation before.

“As we speak, over 78 people were killed, more than 70 others are missing and I can’t really say the number of injured people; however we suspect they may have been abducted.

“Also, over 100 houses were set ablaze, it took the grace of God for some of us to be alive, as we took to our heels and took cover in bushes, but I still don’t know their motive,
so that’s why we feel they are bandits.

“We are calling on the government to come to our aid; and security operatives to provide more security and intensify search for the missing people.”

He said that many were injured while hundreds of people have fled their homes, adding that security personnel are yet to reach the villages.

Musa said the gunmen, in separate attacks, invaded the villages at about 1 am when the residents of the areas were going about their normal activities and started shooting sporadically.

He said there is a high presence of security operatives in the affected communities now.

When DAILY POST contacted the spokesman of the Plateau State Police Command, ASP Ubah Ogaba, he said, “The Command is aware of the incident at kanam and deployment has been drafted
to the area.

“Detailed information will be communicated when I return from Kanam.”

DAILY POST recalls that on the 2nd April, 2022, 10 people were killed and 19 others injured during a festival to usher in the farming season (Zereci) in Irigwe chiefdom of Bassa
LGA of the State.

Recall also that, gunmen suspected to be Fulani militia on the 7th, April, 2022, attacked Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) who were trying to rebuild their homes at Rantis, in
Gashish District of Barkin Ladi LGA of the state, killing two and leaving three others with gunshot wounds.

Meantime, major routes in Jos, the state capital, leading to head offices of security agencies were on Sunday blocked by security operatives, on rumors of planned attacks on security
formations in the state.

However, while security agencies were on alert in the state capital, mayhem was being unleashed on four villages in Kanam LGA of the state.

EBONYI STATE

Effium/Ezza-Effium crisis: Many killed,
houses burnt as gunmen invade Ebonyi community.

Men of the underworld, otherwise known as unknown gunmen, have reportedly attacked Ohaogelode community in Izzi Local Government Area of Ebonyi State.

Vanguard gathered that the assailants left many dead bodies on their trail as the community is yet to recover from the unfortunate incident.

Investigations revealed that the affected community is said to be a neighboring community to Effium, in Ohaukwu Local Government Area, which has been involved in an intra communal
crisis.

The crisis in Effium, which is between Effium and Ezza-Effium has claimed many lives and led to many Ezza-Effium people taking refuge in Ohaogelode community and other locations
in the State.

Contacted, the Police spokesperson in the state, Loveth Odah said she was not aware of the incident.

However, a video of the said incident circulating online showed that at least two persons were killed. In the video, a victim was burnt to death, besides a building which was still
on fire.

Another dead victim, a woman, could be seen in the video with machete cut wounds all over her body.

However, unconfirmed reports said at least four persons were killed as over five houses were burnt by the unknown attackers.

Meanwhile, a statement credited to the Chairman of Ohaukwu Local Government Area, Clement Odah condemned the attack.

The statement reads: “Ohaukwu Local Government Council has received with concern, a report of the unfortunate incident at Ohaogelode Village, in Ishieke Community.

“The Council condemn the incident in strong terms and reassure all that no stones will be left unturned to unravel the true circumstances that led to such avoidable loss of lives
and properties.“Council has initiated a spirited and discreet investigation to unveil the perpetrators of the act and ensure that justice is done.

“Our heartfelt sympathies goes to all the affected families and our beloved brothers from Ohaogelode village. Council re-affirms that both Ishieke and Effium communities have lived
in peace as brothers from time immemorial and this peace must not be tampered with.”

“The government of Ebonyi State under our peace loving Governor has worked assiduously to restore peace in the entire Ebonyi State and all hands must be on deck to achieve the task
of a peaceful Ebonyi State where love and unity reigns supreme.

“Once Again all parties are assured that justice must be done as a deterrence and guarantee against future recurrence”, Odah said.

RIVERS STATE

-Again, scores feared dead as fire guts Rivers jetty.

Many people are feared dead following a fire incident at Bonny/Bille/Nembe jetty in Port Harcourt, the Rivers State capital.

The incident took place on Monday morning while traders were unloading goods from boats at the jetty.

Also destroyed were fiber and wooden boats at the facility.

This comes a few months after a raging fire gutted market boats at the same jetty.

The boats were loading and unloading at the jetty when the fire suddenly started, as it was believed to be carrying some illegally refined petroleum products.
