Suspected Fulani herdsmen kill 15 in TarabaNo fewer than 70 Christians have been killed and several others injured after suspected Fulani herdsmen attacked Plateau State communities.
According to report, one of the deadliest attacks took place on May 2 when herdsmen reportedly set the Church of Christ in Nations (COCIN) located in Foron Town, Barkin Ladi Local Government Area (LGA), on fire, killing 27 Christians, including Rev. Luka Gwom and one Pauline, who got married just two weeks before the incident.
A resident, who gave his name as Gyang, noted that many persons were yet to return home since the attacks occurred.
From April 25 to May 11, Gyang reported at least six attacks on more than eight villages in Barkin Ladi and Riyom local governent areas.
He said, “The jihadists, in their quest to eliminate Christians in Plateau State and their thirst for blood, have succeeded in killing Christians and burning their houses”.

“We in Riyom and Barkin Ladi LGAs have been under siege and invasion. Lives have been lost almost every day, and there is no serious action from any quarter by the government. But we are still faithful to our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ”, Gyang stated.
