Gunmen have attacked Dong village in Plateau state, killing seven persons.

The armed men were said to have invaded the village on Sunday night, and shot sporadically.

Gabriel Ubah, the state police spokesman, confirmed the incident in a statement.

He said the police received a distress call about the attack around 8pm and immediately went to the scene of the incident.


He said the attackers had, however, fled into the bush by the time they arrived.

“On Sunday 23/05/2021 at about 2000hrs, the Command received a distress call that yet to be identified gunmen came out suddenly from a near by bush, invaded Dong Village, Jos South LGA and killed seven persons,” he said.

“A combined team of Policemen, STF, Vigilante operatives led by the Deputy Commissioner of Police, Department of Operation, raced swiftly to the scene but the hoodlums had already fled back into the bush.


“Investigation is ongoing, frantic effort is on to arrest the fleeing suspects.”

In April, eight miners were killed following an attack by gunmen in Kuru, Jos south LGA of the state. 

Days before, gunmen attacked the Federal Airport Authority of Nigeria (FAAN) staff quarters in Barkin Ladi of the state and abducted two workers of the Nigeria Meteorological Agency (NMA).
