In a tragic turn of events, two villages within the Bokkos local government area of Plateau State, namely Mandung-Mushu and Kopnanle, were brutally attacked on Friday night, resulting in the deaths of at least 10 individuals.

Barr. Farmasum Fuddang, Chairman of the Bokkos Cultural Development Council (BCDC Vanguard), confirmed the attacks in a statement released on Saturday. According to Fuddang, over 50 armed assailants stormed the villages, setting fires to homes and a religious building, and shooting at residents who attempted to flee.

The attacks occurred despite the presence of various security forces in the region, including the Department of State Services (DSS), Army, and Police, raising questions about the effectiveness of the security measures in place.

Fuddang criticized the security forces for their lack of intervention and accused them of ignoring prior warnings submitted by the BCDC Vanguard to the DSS. The council had recently challenged a leaked memo that wrongfully accused their community of planning violence against Fulani residents, calling the intelligence behind the memo "fabricated and defamatory."

The incidents have sparked outrage and fear among the local population, with Fuddang suggesting that the attacks might be part of an agenda to impose Sharia law and displace the local communities. The timing of the attacks, closely following the DSS’s warning, has also led to suspicions of collusion or neglect by the authorities.

Plateau State Governor Caleb Mutfwang strongly condemned the violence and the loss of life, describing the attacks as "unfortunate and unacceptable." In a statement delivered by his Director of Press and Public Affairs, Gyang Bere, Mutfwang reassured that efforts to restore peace and facilitate the return of displaced persons were ongoing, and he pledged that the government would seek justice against the perpetrators.

Governor Mutfwang extended his sympathies to the families of the deceased and injured and called upon all security agencies to intensify their efforts to protect the communities and prevent further incidents.

You can never hear that Nigerian soldiers kill or arrest these fulani herdsmen burning down Nigeria. Even the soldiers have all relocated to South East where check points are littered all over the region and in south south.
