Bandits attack Plateau village, kill six

TopNaija reports that residents went into a frenzy after bandits stormed their community in Pinau village, Wase Local Government Area of Plateau State.

According to a source, the bandits invaded their community on Wednesday, July 27, and started shooting randomly, leading to six innocent civilians’ deaths.

One of the area’s residents, identified as Garba Kasuwa, who fled his home, told Daily Trust that the assailants came in their numbers on motorcycles, wielding guns.

“Before the arrival of the bandits, hundreds of residents of the community have already fled because of the fear of being attack, and that is why the casualty figure is not much. Six people were killed. The bandits on their arrival, asked people to remain in their rooms. They broke our shops and stole food items and other properties. They also kidnapped some people. The situation was pathetic,”  the resident confirmed.

Confirming the incident, Major Ishaku Takwa, the spokesperson for Operation Safe Haven (OPSH), a multi-security task force maintaining peace in the state told the aforementioned publication that troops were sent to the area.

The incident occurred five days after the residents of the Wase town raised the alarm over the withdrawal of soldiers from the area, a development that forced hundreds of occupants to flee their homes.
