A fully fledged military base has been established in Daffo village, Bokkos Local Government Area of Plateau State to combat violent attacks by suspected Fulani herdsmen, sources say.

This follows the resurgence of the attacks in the area on Wednesday last week, which persisted till Saturday.

At least 25 people have been reported dead in the attacks which also saw to the displacement of over 2000 people from about five villages.

The attacks drew condemnations from different individuals and groups including the Nigerian Youth and Sports Minister, Solomon Dalung.

The Plateau State Governor, Simon Lalong on Sunday gave a marching order to the security  agents in the state to "immediately" arrest and prosecute the criminals that perpetrated the killings of a couple of persons in Bassa and Bokkos Local Government Areas of the state.

The Nigerian Defense Headquarters also said it was working to end the attacks.

Army spokesman Brig.-Gen. Texas Chukwu said the army and other security agencies were working assiduously to identify and arrest all those involved in those acts, “regardless of their disposition in the society, including government functionaries”.

Gen. Chukwu said the attention of the army had been drawn to the continued disturbing, senseless killings and wanton destruction of properties in the three states and “strongly warns the perpetrators of these crimes to desist forthwith”.

“We would like to unequivocally reiterate that the Army Headquarters warns the arsonists and the killers to stop or face decisive action by troops.

“Our Rules of Engagement (ROE) are clear on arson and murder. Therefore, no such criminal acts would be allowed in any of the aforementioned states.

“The public is please reminded that when troops are called out for internal security operations, they are not to joke or persuade anyone.

“We have warned our commanders on the ground to take decisive actions or face "Court Marshal".

A group of concerned Ron Kulere stakeholders represented by Amb. Mamot Adams and Arch. Macham Makut on Sunday demanded local and international government actions on the attacks.

One Muhammadu Musa Bimini a Fulani Herdsman has so far been arrested by the Police Mobile men on the 08/03/2018 at Daffo with military AK47 riffle number HC2614.

Police Public Relations Officer of Plateau state, Mathias Tyopev says the suspect has since been transferred from Bokkos to the State CIID and is assisting Police with investigation.
