The orgy of violence currently rocking Plateau State continued yesterday with the killing of four persons, including a security man and the injury to others in another attack by suspected Fulani herdsmen in Nkiendoro village of Bassa Local Government Area of the state.
Apart from those killed, Sunday Telegraph learnt that 40 houses and 74 food barns were also burnt down, while more than 47 farms were destroyed.

President, Irigwe Youth Movement of Bassa Local Government, Mr Chinge Dodo Justice, while confirming the attacks and killings to Sunday Telegraph in Jos, said the incident took place at Nkiendoro Village of Irigwe Chiefdom on Friday night.

Incidentally, Nkiendoro is the same village that soldiers allegedly told the locals sometime back to move to the local primary school for protection only for the soldiers to abandon them when recently suspected Fulani herdsmen killed 29 including women, children and the old.

“The attack took place at Nkiendoro village of Irigwe Chiefdom in night. Three locals were killed and the Unit Commander of OPSH was killed and his body burnt. About 40 houses were completely raised including an ECWA Church in the village with the Catholic Church vandalised.”

He claimed that the attackers were more than 200.

“They were more than 200 of them in black clothing, well-armed. The government is keeping mum over the attacks. We are not safe. Just on Wednesday we lost 19 of our people by the same Fulani herdsmen.

“As a people we are under a serious threat of extinction; within the last 10 days we have lost more than 30 of our people through Fulani attacks,” he said.

Meanwhile, the Nigerian Air Force (NAF) has said it had deployed an EC-135 helicopter and an Intelligence Surveillance and Reconnaissance (ISR) aircraft to the troubled state.

Air Commodore Ibikunle Daramola, NAF Director of Public Relations and Information, disclosed this in a statement on Saturday in Abuja.

Daramola said NAF also deployed an additional detachment of Regiment Personnel to Plateau in support of efforts aimed at quelling the crisis that recently erupted in the state and restoring normalcy.

“The deployment of the ISR aircraft is expected to enhance intelligence gathering while the helicopter would conduct air support missions in close coordination with surface forces of Operation SAFE HAVEN.

“Meanwhile, NAF L-39 fighter aircraft, operating from Kano, have commenced armed reconnaissance missions over known flash points within the state,” he said.

The NAF spokesman said that other NAF air assets were also available at other nearby airfields to provide additional support to hasten the process of restoring normalcy in the state.
