Family Of Ten Killed In Plateau by gboyetade: 7:06pm On Feb 22, 2013
Unknown gunmen stormed Kogwom village in Vom district of Jos south local government area, Plateau State, killing 10 individuals and leaving two others fatally injured.

The gunmen attacked a family compound where 10 members of the family were killed in cold blood while two others sustained gunshot wounds after which the attackers routed their escape through surrounding environs.

The special task force in a press release signed by Lieutenant Kingsley Egbo confirmed the gruesome murder of the family stating that efforts by the force and police to gain access to the scene with a view to combing the area for possible trace of the attackers were foiled by the locals.

Two members of the family were fortunate to be alive and are receiving treatment at the Vom Christian hospital.

Meanwhile, angry youths continue to protest the incessant killings in the area.

Reports from the community indicates that the family lost a grandmother few days ago and gathered for the preparation of her funeral which informed the large presence of the members in the compound as the assailants attacked in the night after a family meeting.

Reacting to the attack, Special Adviser to governor Jonah Jang on media and Publicity Ayuba Pam who was at the scene described the incident as barbaric and inhuman stressing that government will not rest in the search for lasting peace in the state.

The unknown gunmen are likely to be Fulanis. These cattle rearers and also weapon weilders.

okkkkkkk.....with all these killings since like FOREVER and "Jagajanga in the middle of all this -i.e. the supposedly no. 1 chief security officer of the state- ; dunno, i think the puzzle is sorta fitting together....! i mean why would people's live(s) be so negligible such as this height of madness happening in Unjost...! Maybe sumone needs to be impeached (or resign voluntarily)since no progress in security has been made since he's been bleeping in charge of the state....!

The most annoying part is that: if you try to find out what those people did that caused their untimely death, you'll never find anything. Some people dont see others as their fellow humans. SMH!

It's not like the killers are unknown. These Fulani guys have been attacking those villages for years now. The fact that the media (in the usual mien) keep saying "unknown gunmen" doesn't hide the truth from those who are conversant with the issues on the ground. Very sad situation.

Hmmmmm... There was a time when a murder of this sort is rare,a very big taboo and greatly mourned by almost everyone. Now,it's like an everyday news,it has become so common that one can even predict what sympatizers will say,nothing short of "RIP, the wicked notherners,God will judge the muderers,etc". At the end,everybody will go back to their daily routines as if nothing ever happenend, patiently waiting for another news of the sort. Someone once told me that d end is so near and now I wish the end had come long ago. This world is full of poo.

Enough is enough. Since govt. Cannot help, the people should help themselves by way of securing themselves. They should also acquire weapons for self defense. If u are in Jew u behave somehow like the Jewish.

Bro, don't show your ignorance.........the Security man gave you a tip, because you don't come from there, that is you are a stranger who from what I see can't defend himself. Fulanis have been raidin this villages for a long while. #Opensecret
