Shocking!!! The crisis in Plateau State takes a guerrilla approach, no fewer than 11 people were killed in two separate attacks in the early hours of Monday in  Jos North and Barkin-Ladi local government areas of the state.

One of the survivors of the incident told Nigerian Tribune that the attackers came to the village in two separate Opel Vectra cars and released several gunshots into the air to scare the people.

He further said that in the raid which lasted for about two hours, seven people, three women and four men, were killed while five houses were burnt in the attack.

Reacting to the attack, the chairman of Jos North Local Government, Mr Timothy Buba, condemned the operations of the Special Task Force in the area and wondered why such dastardly act would be committed with the presence of the military within the vicinity.

Buba implored the military authorities to investigate the men of STF deployed in the area, adding that the response of the men when the inhabitants of Zakalio put a distress call to them was questionable.

“When the people of the village called them when the attack was going on, the STF  responded that they had no fuel in their vehicles. And after the attack, we saw the footprint of boots and live  ammunition left behind by the attackers. All these call for an investigation,” he said.

Yesterday we reported the killing of a family of eight on Sunday.  Nigerian Tribune learnt that the rampaging assailants, suspected to be Fulani herdsmen, struck again at about 2.00 a.m. at Zakalio village in Tar District of Jos North Local Government Area.

Also in the early hours of Monday, another group of attackers   invaded Dabwak, near Kuru Science School and Farin-Lamba and killed two aged people and two of their grandchildren.

According to a source close to the scene of the incident, a 70-year-old woman and her husband (74) were brutally murdered alongside their grandchildren, Philip, who was 11 years old and Titus, eight years, adding that 10 others sustained serious injuries in the attack.

As result of the attack, both the women and youths in the area trooped out en masse to protest against the attack. They stormed the military duty posts in the affected villages, alleging that men of the STF were responsible for the attack.

The aggrieved youth, who were in their hundreds, burnt four articulated lorries, two buses and two cars and also injured some of those travelling on the highway in the area.

Our problems here in nigeria is that we pursue peace, instead of realities. The truth is that they will be no peace, the youths of jos, should reason beyond their present calamity, and take  arms in self defence.

JTF should be held responsible for these attacks, their actions shows that they knows everything about the attacks.
