About 10 people, mostly women and children have been reported dead following renewed attacks by suspected Fulani herdsmen in Bassa and Bokkos LGAs, Plateau State.

The attacks which took place yesterday and today morning while President Buhari was in Jos on a working visit equally left many wounded, sources say.

The attacks in Mayi village of Daffo Ward, Bokkos LGA and Nzhauvo village of Miango district, Bassa LGA reportedly took place when over 2000 policemen were drafted to Jos to guard the President during his visit.

MKB yesterday reported the wounding of five women in Nghakudung village in Josho community, Daffo district of Bokkos LGA in the early hours of the day.

Although one was reported to have died at the Plateau Specialists Hospital, Jos, all five were rushed to the hospital without security cover after gunmen suspected to be Fulani reportedly stormed the village breaking and shooting houses.

The shootings reportedly continued throughout yesterday forcing women and children to vacate the village for safety.

The five later killed were among those fleeing the troubled village, a source said.

Similar killings were reported in a Bassa village on Wednesday this week.

President Buhari was however mute on the attacks when he came to the state.

Buhari in his speech acknowledged Gov. Lalong's strides in infrastructural development and peace building but failed to speak on herders-farmers attacks.

Member representing Mangu-Bokkos constituency at the National Assembly, Solomon Maren expressed pain that despite the President's visit, no strong statement had been made on ending the conflict.

As at the time of publishing this report, the Plateau State Command of the Nigerian Police Force and the Special Task Force in the state were yet to respond to enquiries on the latest attacks.
