A 19 year old final year secondary school student has been shot dead in Kambang village of Daffo District, Bokkos Local Government Area, Plateau State.

The deceased, identified as Mr. Tajan Hassan Ezekiel was said to have been shot by gunmen believed to be herdsmen when he went for a pee in the late ours of yesterday.

The attackers according to the District Head of Daffo, Saf Bitrus Dauda had surrounded the house where the deceased was, long before the shooting.

"It was a house raid and they were said to have surrounded the house when the boy went out to urinate," he said.

Saf Dauda disclosed that one other person was wounded during the attack which occurred at about 9pm.

"The other boy about 21years old heard a gun blast and came out to check what it was and was also shot in the leg," the village chief said.

The attack occurred hours after a Church women fellowship leader from Daffo gave a testimony at a Christian women convention in Vom, Jos South LGA on how many women and children survived the attacks of January and March, 2018 in Daffo, soliciting for prayers for normalcy.

Similar attacks had occurred in Jol and Bachi villages in Riyom LGA two days earlier where two people were reportedly killed with others sustaining injuries.

The Daffo attack however coincided with a similar incident in Gall hamlet in Rim village, Riyom LGA.

Vigilante group members were however said to have repelled the attackers, arresting four who were found to be government security personnel attached with the Special Task Force, Operations Safe Haven in the state.

The STF and Police spokespersons in the state were however yet to respond to enquiries on the incident as of publishing time.
