Gunmen Kill Pastor, Two Sons In Plateau Fresh Attack.


A Clergy with the Church of Christ in Nations (COCIN) Rev Musa Hyok, was on Saturday night killed alongside two of his only Sons in Ganawuri community of Riyom local Government area of Plateau.

The incident which occured in the earlier hours of Sunday was said to be a reprisal attack following the killing of three Fulani Youths on Wednesday in Ganawuri.

Youth leader of Ganawuri, Song Mura, who confirmed the development to Our Crew said trouble started when some Suspected Fulani kidnappers were arrested during the Market day last Wednesday but later escaped in the hands of Fulani Vigilante whom were to keep them before the arrival of security operatives.

According to Muru, the situation degenerated in to argument and later escalated to Crisis leading to the death of three Fulani Youths and despite several meetings and appealed for calm, some Suspected Fulanis still launched an attack on innocent Family who had nothing to do with last Wednesday’s incident.

The Plateau State Police Command through it’s spokesman DSP Alfred Alabo Confirmed the incident and said the command has commenced investigation to unravel those behind the attack.

As at the time of filling in this report, the Pastor and his two sons are being buried amidst tension in the entire Ganawuri axis with Men of the Operation Safe Haven and other security operatives taken over the entire Ganawuri Community to restored normalcy.
