The Plateau State Police Command has said that many people were killed on Thursday by unknown gunmen around Rukuba Road area of Jos North Local Government Area of the state.

Tyope Terna, the state police spokesperson, confirmed the incident in a press statement sent to PREMIUM TIMES on Friday.

“On the 27/09/2018 being Thursday at about 2205hrs, the Plateau State Police Command Control Room in Jos received a distress call to the effect that there were sporadic gunshots at Rukuba Road opposite Kowa Hotel, Jos.

“The Command after receiving the report mobilised patrol teams immediately to the scene of crime.

“The unknown gunmen who took advantage of the ongoing rain in the area to attack residents were forced to run from the scene by the combined superior gun fire of the Police and the Operation Safe Haven (STF).

“Some people who reside close to the hills were rescued while some persons lost their lives as a result of the attack and some others sustained gunshot injuries and were rushed to Bingham University Teaching Hospital, Jos and are currently receiving treatment.

“The combine security is out to contain the situation in Jos. As such, members of the public are to remain calm and law abiding. Patrol of the area is being intensified and investigation in the crime has commenced,” Mr Terna has added.

Following Thursday’s killings, there is tension in Jos as protesters blocked major roads on Friday.

Many young persons were seen burning tyres on the roads in what residents fear may lead to religious crisis.

Business activities have been shut and many roads deserted in the Plateau capital.


Security personnel were, however, seen patrolling major parts of the city.

Following the tension, the Plateau State Government has imposed a dusk to dawn curfew in Jos.

“Sequel to security breach in some parts of the Jos North, Gov. Simon Lalong, has approved the imposition of a disk-to-down curfew from 6: P.M to 6: A.M in Jos North and Jos South LGAs with immediate effect.

“However, while assuring of lives and properties of the people, citizens are advised to exercise restrain to remain calm and report any suspicious movement to the law enforcement agents,” the government said in a statement by the Secretary to the State Government.

Yes this has been confirmed by multiple sources. I hear that a family was wiped out in Rukuba area by marauding murderers who have not been reined in by the powers of the State. This is only the latest in a series of genocidal attacks and serial bloodletting by blood thirsty 'unknown gunmen'. This has triggered violent reactions by aggrieved elements who are even defying the military. What a shame that lives are being wasted with impunity and people have guts to openly canvas a single vote at this time!

Too bad how human life is no longer valued in our country.

APC government finds it easy to dispatch the military to manipulate elections but remains toothless in securing the lives of the citizens.

MARK MY WORD: If Buhari is re-elected in 2019, the case of Rwanda will be a child's play to what will befall Nigeria.

This is a horrible administration, the worst in this wide world.
Very shameful situation in a country that should be a model to emulate.

Its painful to say this and I ask for God's forgiveness but a country that decides buhari is an option in any election again after his unrivalled failure,deserves whatever it gets.
For God's sake Jonathan was voted out because of corruption and insecurity.
Buhari has failed monumentally in fighting corruption, Nigeria is more violence prone than at anytime, save the civil war and he has overseen economic misery like never before.Yet despite these kinds of killings and failings,some people still shout "sai baba".
God can do so much for a people.
If we decide to continue enjoying this orgy of nationwide bloodshed without effecting a change of leadership,so be it.

And come election day, you will rather sit at home than stand in the sun to vote. Do you even have your voters card?
