Some gunmen killed two persons in Riyom local government area of Plateau state on Tuesday.

Tyopev Terna, spokesman of the state police command, confirmed this to TheCable.

He said the attackers struck at Joli, a village in the area, around 9:30pm.

Terna also said two of the residents escaped with injuries while two lost their lives during the attack.

“The four persons were coming back from wherever they are coming from. While on the road, they were attacked by unknown gunmen. Two died; one Susan Daniel, a sixteen-year-old lady and Joel George, who was 29 years old,” he told TheCable on phone.

“The other two; Datum Yakubu and Rebecca Daniel escaped the attack with wounds. They are receiving treatment right now.”

He said normalcy had been restored in the area with security operatives on the trail of the attackers.

The police spokesman added that no arrest had been made but that investigation was ongoing.

Plateau has suffered series of attacks lately.

Tuesday’s attack is coming a week after President Muhammadu Buhari condemned the killings in the state and directed the military to intervene in the security situation in the state.
