About four people are feared dead following separate attacks in Central Nigeria's Plateau State, reports say.

Two people named as Mr. Zat James Gyang and Mr. Musa Pam Bature were on Friday killed in an ambush attack in Nding village, Fan district of Barkin Ladi LGA.

A young man named Luka Musa, 30 who was allegedly stabbed by unidentified persons in Jos South LGA also died yesterday in a clinic owned by Evangelical Church Winning All (ECWA), it was learnt.

While confirmation was still being awaited from Police authorities, an overnight attack by unidentified gunmen, Saturday led to the feared killing of one Jibrin John in Farandong Hai village of Daffo district, Bokkos LGA.

The attack, eyewitnesses say occurred close to midnight, leading to a fierce gun battle between the assailants and military personnel in the village.

It is however not confirmed if Mr. Jibrin was actually killed as he was said to be "unaccounted for" as of publishing time.

Several houses were however reportedly demolished by the attackers who are still at large.

Authorities have still not responded to text enquiries sent to them requesting official confirmation.

The Daffo attack which comes less than five months after suspected herders killed over 30 people, displaying over 7000 others from nine villages in the district, Farandong Hai village inclusive, followed an attack on the convoy of Governor Simon Lalong of the State by "hoodlums" in the Southern part of the State capital.

The hoodlums, State Commissioner for Information, Yakubu Dati said, laid ambush on the highway and attacked the Governor's convoy with stones, rods and other unidentified objects,  damaging vehicles including those carrying the Government House Press Corp, security and relief agencies.

The governor was said to be on his first visit to Internally Displaced Persons' camps since the June attacks in Barkin Ladi, Riyom and Bokkos LGAs which left over 200 people dead, and over 100,000 others displaced.

The attack comes few weeks after protesters invaded the State Government House, destroying cars, glass windows and other properties allegedly worth millions of naira.

"The Government finds it regrettable that while its efforts at restoring peace is yielding results, certain unpatriotic elements are bent on returning our State to the sad era of blood letting by instigating religious and ethnic hatred, for cheap political gains.

"The Government views these attacks as an affront on the authority of the State and will therefore take appropriate measures to checkmate  merchants  of division and  death," warned the Information Commissioner.

A group of youths from the Berom ethnic nationality which predominantly decides in the area where the attack on the Governor's convoy occurred has condemned the attack as criminal.

"We the Berom Patriots ask His Excellency to see the attack as a criminal action which must be unravelled and dealt with.

"We implore you not to relent in your effort in getting justice for Plateau people affected by conflict.

"Your Excellency has demonstrated a father figure and we stand by you in your effort to develop Plateau state," said a statement by Mr. Dachollom Badung, the President and Mr. Gyang David, Secretary of the group.
