Plateau: Scores feared killed in overnight attack near University

Securities likely unable to track attackers

Several people may have been killed in an overnight attack near Plateau State University, Bokkos, Monday.

Sources say armed men believed to be herdsmen invaded Fit-Ma-Kusho village in Mazat/Marit Ward of Barkin Ladi Local Government Area, at about 10pm, shooting for hours without security intervention.

A panic sounding source in the village who claimed to be in hiding at about midnight said his cousin was killed but was not sure how many more could be affected as shooting was still on.

Officials contacted said they were working to verify information on the attack for onward mobilization of rescue teams.
