Gunmen Kill Four Persons, Burn Houses, Barns In Plateau by Racoon(m): 12:15pm On Feb 15
Gunmen in the early hours of Monday invaded two villages in Kwall District of Bassa Local Government Area of Plateau State and killed four youths.

National President of the Irigwe Development Association (IDA) Mr Robbert Ashi, who confirmed the incident, said three young persons were ambushed by suspected herdsmen and killed between Jebbu Bassa and Rikwechongu village on Sunday evening.

Another person, he said, was killed at Zirshe village on Monday morning and some houses burnt, including food barns.

According to him: “Yesterday night I was informed of attacks by suspected herdsmen who ambushed and killed three of our youth returning back from Jebbu Bassa to Rikwechongu village close to the School of Accountancy.

“While at the early hours of this morning (Monday) the herdsmen also attacked Zirshe village and killed one person, burnt several houses including food barns where the villagers had kept their recently harvested produce. This action is condemnable coming at the time our people are preaching peace in the land,” he said.

Ashi described the attacks as unfortunate and called on the security agencies to arrest the attackers whom he said are suspected herdsmen

Senator Istifanus Gyang said he is saddened and grieved by the attacks on Rikwechongu and Zirshe villages of Irigwe Chiefdom, Bassa LGC.

His Special Assistant Media and Protocol, Musa Ashoms, said the Senator noted with concern and dismay that while all effort is focussed on rebuilding peace and reconciling people of Plateau North, there were still persons whose preoccupation is violence and bloodletting.

Gyang urged government and the security agencies to secure and protect law abiding citizens and communities of Plateau North and bring the culprits to justice.

Under the administration of general Buhari, killing, kidnapping, banditry and police brutality has become a sport festival.


It was not so during the administration of GEJ.

See what these killers have done to the Yirigwe people of Miango without any provocation.I remember how peaceful the people of this community were when we lived in 3 Armoured Div.Barracks @ Rukuba.

How can an ethnic group subject a nation to this kind of inhuman treatment while governors & the FG are yarning dust? Let the new IDA leadership be encouraged as well as all communities affect by this unfortunate incidence but how long will the patience of people be stretched?

We need a well articulated community policing. The police can't be everywhere considering how scanty their number is. RIP for the dead. God will uplift plateau state from the hands of those who want to destroy her and her children.

To those who can hear me, I say - do not despair. The misery that is now upon us is but the passing of greed - the bitterness of men who fear the way of human progress. The hate of men will pass, and dictators die, and the power they took from the people will return to the people. And so long as men die, liberty will never perish. …..
Soldiers! don’t give yourselves to brutes - men who despise you - enslave you - who regiment your lives - tell you what to do - what to think and what to feel! Who drill you - diet you - treat you like cattle, use you as cannon fodder. Don’t give yourselves to these unnatural men - machine men with machine minds and machine hearts! You are not machines! You are not cattle! You are men! You have the love of humanity in your hearts! You don’t hate! Only the unloved hate - the unloved and the unnatural! Soldiers! Don’t fight for slavery! Fight for liberty!
In the 17th Chapter of St Luke it is written: “the Kingdom of God is within man” - not one man nor a group of men, but in all men! In you! You, the people have the power - the power to create machines. The power to create happiness! You, the people, have the power to make this life free and beautiful, to make this life a wonderful adventure.


Then - in the name of democracy - let us use that power - let us all unite. Let us fight for a new world - a decent world that will give men a chance to work - that will give youth a future and old age a security. By the promise of these things, brutes have risen to power. But they lie! They do not fulfil that promise. They never will!
Dictators free themselves but they enslave the people! Now let us fight to fulfil that promise! Let us fight to free the world - to do away with national barriers - to do away with greed, with hate and intolerance. Let us fight for a world of reason, a world where science and progress will lead to all men’s happiness. Soldiers! in the name of democracy, let us all unite!

This is history repeating itself, insecurity and lawlessness has become the order of the day. But no matter how they try to suppress the masses, we won't die but rather we will multiply and then come back to divide them. The Egyptians we see today we shall see them no more. "HOPE".

Buhari will go down as the worst president ever in the history of Nigeria.

He who stoked the embers of ethnic related violence.

State sponsored killings, we are no different from Sudan, Syria, Iran and the likes.
