Despite Buhari’s presence in Plateau, Fulani herdsmen attack community; five feared killed

Less than 24 hours after the official launch of a five-year roadmap for peace strategy in Plateau State by President Muhammadu Buhari, Fulani herdsmen reportedly killed five persons in the state.

The attack occurred in Nzharuvo community of Basa Local Government Area of the state on Thursday night.

The attacked community is located close to ECWA Secondary School, Mingo, in Bassa local government.

According to reports, the victims were mostly children and a woman.


That the attack occurred while the president is in Plateau further shows the porous security situation in the state. The police had earlier said they were deploying over 2,000 officers to Plateau for the president’s visit. During the two-day visit, the president, among other things, commissioned a Plateau road named after him.
