No fewer than four persons have been reportedly killed by gunmen suspected to be herdsmen at Gbra-Zongo village of Irigwe Chiefdom of Bassa Local Government Area in Plateau State.

Among those who were killed is a 34-year-old Pastor, Mathew Tagwai, of Evangelical Church Winning All, according to Daily Sun.

The newly posted pastor serving with ECWA church was killed alongside three others by the gunmen who attacked Ggbra Zongo community on Tuesday night, Daily Sun has learnt.

A resident, Chayi Biri, confirmed the incident to Daily Sun, giving the names of the deceased persons as Dih Sunday, 21; Duh Abba, 38; and Ishaku Abba, 10.

Irigwe Chiefdom in the local government area has been under siege as a result of constant attacks by gunmen suspected to be herdsmen.

No fewer than 12 persons were brutally killed and property worth millions of naira destroyed by the gunmen.


A source close to Gbra-Zongo village where the incident occurred posited that the gunmen numbering about twenty invaded the village in the early hours of Wednesday and shot indiscriminately into the air to announce their arrival.

The source further disclosed that the gunmen in the process of their nefarious act killed four persons, injured six and burnt down many houses.

The Chairman, Maingo Youth Development Association, Mr Nuhu Nkali, said the mode of the attack was not different from the previous ones in Irigwe Chiefdom, adding that it was carried out without any resistance either from the harmless community or security men.

“In this attack, four persons were killed including a clergyman and 10-year-old boy. The attack started at about 19:56 pm [and continued to] the early hours of Wednesday. The gunmen had a field day because there was no security men on ground to repel them. Security men in the community were withdrawn about one month ago after two of their men were killed,” he said.

The State Police Public Relations Officer, ASP Ubah Gabriel, confirmed that four people were killed in the attack.

He said the State Commissioner of Police, Mr Isaac Akinmoyede, has deployed more police under the command of Assistant Commissioner of Police (Operations) to the affected community.

“The Command is investigating the case and we solicit for useful information from the community to make arrests.”

The wrath of God will fall on all these killers and their sympathizers, in Jesus name.

Their governor needs some brain resetting obviously... It's disturbing and inhumane to keeping reading ugly stories like this.

The Bassas will definitely want to fight back that's when security operatives will respond quickly to avert retaliation.

The most important duty of any responsible government is the protection of lives and properties. It's not a good sign when we loose our loved ones to avoidable deaths caused by senseless, selfish and incompetent leaders.

May the souls of the departed rest in peace. My prayers to the affected families.may God comfort you and give you the strength to carry on.

Did our Leaders who fought and gain independence for this country even Prayed at all before Amalgamating The Northern with The Southern Pectorate??
Did our Leaders consider the repercussion of staging African Festival 1977??
Did our Leaders consider the repercussion of Expelling over 2million foreign citizens "1983"?? blaming them for widespread of Unemployment and Crime.
They Sow, now the country at large is Reaping, virtually in EVERY NOOK and CRANES
