It was reported some hours ago that suspected armed Fulani militias attacked farmers at Vatt community of Foron District, Barkin Ladi LGA of Plateau State.
As a result, two of the farmers.
Pam Bulus aged 23 and Chun Toma 20 are said to have hailed from Uddeh, a neighbouring village with Vatt where the onslaught was occasioned.
From local source at the scene of the incident, “at about 10:30 am of today, 23rd June, 2020, not less than 8 armed Fulani open heavy gunfire on our local farmers, and we lost 2 youth” while other farmers narrowly escaped into the nearby bushes if not, the score of deaths would have been more than the ones recorded.
It’s also gathered that the armed men quickly ran back towards Gora area in Jos East LGA of Plateau State as the corpses have been buried according to Christian rite.
