Six people killed by suspected Fulani militants in Nigeria
According to the Nigerian Tribune, suspected Fulani Jihadists invaded Wereng community in Plateau state on Thursday evening, killing six and severely injuring two.
“While they were resting, the gunmen, numbering about fifteen who had probably been monitoring them appeared and shot at them at close range. They killed six of them on the spot while two sustained injuries,” a source told the Tribune, adding that the insurgents also destroyed farms during the attack.
The two surviving victims are currently receiving treatment at the Christian Hospital in Vom, Jos South local government area.
The assault comes just days after eight miners were killed in the same council area when suspected herdsmen attacked a mining site and opened fire.
