No fewer than seven people were shot dead while many others injured on Sunday in Zurak campani of Wase LGA of Plateau State.

The incident, according some residents of the community, occurred on market day when residents of the community were bubbling with market activities.

Abdullahi Hussaini, a youth leader in the area, who confirmed the incident, told City & Crime that the gunmen arrived the market around 2pm and opened fire at people transacting businesses.

He said, “The gunmen arrived the market in their numbers on motorcycles. They started shooting sporadically, killing seven people instantly while many others were injured. The gunmen successfully launched the attack and fled without any resistance because people were not expecting any security threat at the moment.
