Eight persons have been reportedly killed and two injured after gunmen attack Cinke and Zamara villages of Kwall District, Rigwe chiefdom of Bassa local government area of Plateau State.

In a statement by Davidson Malison, The National Publicity Secretary of the Irigwe Development Association, (IDA) on friday said, the residents of the villages “Woke up on the left hand side of the bed following the unprovoked attacks launched by the Fulani Militia on thursday night,

May 5, 2022 in the aforesaid areas resulting in the killing of 8 persons”

“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 daily affairs as the marauders have assumed an ‘immuned’ set of people and are fleeing 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.

“It’s no doubt that the system has large extent failed to stop unleashing of carnage because the kind of gloves treatment channeled on the entire issue rather than calling on a dog by his name and have it dealt accordingly.

“We are yet again thrown to a deep mourning mood and plainly and sadly commiserate with the entire families over the loss of gallant people of the land. ” Once again, our call for the authorities concerned be saddled with the protection of lives and property of the citizens to set up and double efforts in safeguarding the Rigwe people cannot be overemphasized and reiterated.

” The National leadership of Irigwe Development Association (IDA) prays for the soul reposing of the faithful departed and encourage her people to be security conscious and alert”, he said
