At least eight persons have been killed, and two others injured as suspected Fulani herders attacked Cinke and Zarama villages of Kwall District of Bassa Local Government Area of Plateau State.

This was disclosed in Jos in a statement signed by the National Publicity Secretary of Irigwe Development Association, Mr. Davidson Malison.

Malison, who described the attack as unprovoked, said that “Fulani militia launched the attacked on Thursday night, resulting in the death of eight persons.”

He said, “The attack is no doubt the continuous perpetration of terror and mayhem in Rigwe land in an attempt to forcefully eject the peace-loving Rigwe people from their ancestral land as well as complete annihilation of the entire tribe.

“The attack has become a daily affair as the marauders have assumed an ‘immuned’ set of people and are feeling untouchable daring the authorities concerned.

“These spate of wanton killings and destructions of lives and property, stealing of valuable items of the Rigwe people has passed a condemnable level which requires a drastic decision and action that will call and treat the attackers in the language they comprehend in order to place them in their cocoons.”

He blamed the unabated attacks in Irigweland on failure of the government to take drastic and courageous action against the attackers.

“We are yet again thrown to a deep mourning mood. But our call, once again, is for the authorities saddled with the protection of lives and property of the citizens to double efforts in safeguarding the Rigwe people”, Malison lamented.
