Yet to be identified gunmen yesterday opened fire in a civilian suburb near the Plateau State National Youth Service orientation camp, killing two, reports say.

The gunmen reportedly stormed the area on motorcycles at about dusk, zooming off after few minutes of sporadic gunfire.

Two young men identified as Mr. Abba and Mr. Mohammed were said to be the ones killed.

It is not yet clear what might have informed the attack.

Police authorities had yet to respond to enquiries on the incident as of the time of publishing this report.
