Suspected Fulani militias kill mother, son and one other in Plateau community

Nov 9, 2022

Gunmen suspected to be Fulani militias have killed three people and destroyed property worth millions of naira in Makabat Batura District, Bokkos Local Government Area of Plateau State.


The gunmen invaded the community through the hills in the area at about 9:30 p.m. on Tuesday, November 8, 2022, and attacked residents, who were caught off guard. 


A youth leader in the community who craved anonymity told the Nigerian Tribune that the attackers killed a woman, her son, and another man in the village.

He said the victims were shot at close range in their respective houses by the Fulani militias who also destroyed goods and properties worth millions of naira before they bolted away.


“The attack came to us as a surprise considering the efforts being put in place by both the government and security agencies to arrest the perpetrators of the killing of innocent people in the local government,” he said. 


“Both the local government and the security agencies have to revisit the peace accord recently signed by the natives and Fulani in the area. Attacks on innocent people have become a daily occurrence in this local government; we are therefore appealing to all the authorities concerned to come to our aid,”
