Armed men on Tuesday night invaded Kwatas community of Bokkos Local Government Area of Plateau State, killing eight people and injuring others.
Adamu Isa, a resident of Bokkos town, told Daily Trust that the gunmen stormed the village around 10 pm and started shooting sporadically to scare the community, adding that they eventually killed eight people.
Isa said, “The number of deaths may be more than eight as some the victims have been rushed to the hospital.”
The spokesperson for the state police command, DSP Alabo Alfred, said he would confirm the incident from the area and get back to our correspondent. He, however, had not done so at the time of filing this report.
The latest attack is coming seven days after gunmen killed 11 persons and injured some others in Maikatako community of the local government area.
