One person has been reportedly killed in Kwi Village of Riyom Local Government Area on Friday, 08/07/2022.
The victim, who was identified as Amos Pam is said to be 35 years.
The incident happened around 7:30pm on Friday night when he was ambushed on his way home by gunmen suspected to be Fulani militias who opened fire on him, and left to mourn him are his wife and two children.
Speaking at the burial of the deceased in Kwi on Saturday morning, President of the Berom Youth Moulder-Association-BYM, Solomon Dalyop Mwantiri, Esq sympathized with the family of the deceased over the incident, adding that it is unfortunate that till date, people in the villages are still being witch-hunted and killed helplessly with little or no effort by Government to address the barbarism.
The youth leader said Political leaders have failed citizens and the peopl must wake up to secure the lands and lives within the ambit of the law so as not to go into extinction.
Mantiri said those with PVCs should safeguard them to elect leaders who will defend the land.
He appealed to the people not to move late in the night and further called on traditional rulers to introduce curfew into their communities to restrict movement of persons.
Despite continues condemnation and assurance by security agencies and government that perpetrators will be fished out and brought to book that has never been seen, the attacks persist in communities for years without political will deliberately set in motion to curb down the terror invasions.
Also this year, destruction of crops and farmlands has alarmingly continued on daily basis in most villages in Berom land with a looming food Insecurity during this year’s harvest.
