About 23 people are believed to have been killed in a fresh attack in Nkiedonwhro, Irigwe chiefdom of Plateau State's Bassa LGA.

The attack said to have been carried out by suspected Fulani occurred at the early hours of Monday.

The latest is about the 3rd in a series of attacks in the LGA since the state government imposed a curfew therein.

The government had imposed the curfew to check such incidences of attacks.

It had on Sunday released a statement saying the attackers were hiding among the locals.

In the statement signed by its Director, Press and Public Affairs, Emmanuel Nanle, the Simon Lalong led government vowed to fish out the attackers.

The latest incident therefore poses a fresh challenge for the government in its quest to rid the state of violent attacks.

As at the time of filing this report, no official statement had been received on the incident in Nkiedonwhro.
