At Atagjeh village, the suspected Fulani militias on Tuesday in the night killed three persons while three others sustained various degrees of injuries and are presently receiving treatment in the hospital.
According to the source, “The attacks in Atyap Chiefdom has become a routine affair by the suspected Fulani militias. Almost all the villages that make the Atyap Chiefdom have been attacked while lives and properties of unimaginable magnitude were destroyed.
“The worst situation is that the attacks are ongoing by the suspected Fulani militias and the natives are left to carry their cross with little or no security to protect them from the hands of the attackers that are determined to carry out their mission.”
Calls put through to the state Police Public Relations Officer, ASP Mohammed Jalige, were unanswered as at the time of writing this report.
