Gunmen kill 2 in Plateau

10 January 2013, 13:10

 Jos—The sporadic attacks on communities in Plateau State yesterday moved close to the residence of Governor Jonah Jang as suspected cattle rearers stormed a ranch at Du, the governor’s home village in Jos South Local Government area, killing two people.

This was even as the Special Task Force, STF, arrested nine persons for allegedly being in possession of sophisticated fire arms.

STF Media Officer, Capt. Salisu Mustapha, who paraded the suspects before newsmen in Jos, alleged that they were arrested around Du, Shenabe and Bisichi villages in Jos South Local Government Area of the state.


Mustapha listed items recovered from them to include one AK-47 rifle, one FN rifle, one sub-machine gun, one locally made shot revolver and a locally made long revolver.

The gunmen said to have gone to the village in a Hilux van, struck at about 2.am shooting indiscriminately and killing the two identified as Gyang and Davou in the process.

The attackers were said to have attempted to shoot their way into the well-fortified ranch but eventually retreated when they found it impenetrable.

Members of the community subsequently mobilized to repel the attackers trailing them into the surrounding bushes but could not find them.
