Video: ''It would be an insult to say there is any rancor between me and Ambode'' - Bola Tinubu says

  • FOLLOWED renewed hostilities in some parts of Jos, the capital of Plateau State on Monday to the early hour of Tuesday, no fewer than ten persons were killed and several houses including vehicles burnt by some irate youths out to avenge the killings of their kinsmen earlier killed.
    It would be recalled that some parts of the state capital have been in crisis since last Friday as a result of the 14 people killed by gunmen suspected to be Fulani herdsmen at Rukuba road in Jos North local government area of the state. The situation however turned ethnic on Sunday leading to the death of more people.
    Tribune Online learnt that the situation took a frightening dimension on Monday at about 9:45 pm to the early hour of Tuesday when some people suspected to be fake soldiers in military uniform invaded Tina Junction, Dutse Uku of Jos North Council area and opened fire at the residence some of whom were keeping vigil over their community to wade off attack and gun down ten people.
    Some of the residents of the area who spoke with Tribune Online said the fake military men shot indiscriminately at people and set houses ablaze at random adding that the elements held the communities to ransome for close to two hours before the arrival of the security agencies which later repelled them.
    It was further gathered that the situation got worse in the early hour of Tuesday, when some Hausa/Fulani youths and the natives squared it up in areas like Rikkos, Dogon Dutse, Yan Shanu, Saint Michael area and burnt several houses including places of worships.
    Among those who were shot by the fake military men was the community leader of the Mupum residing in Jos otherwise called Mishkaham Mupun of Nasarawa Gwom, Mr. Samuel Dawam. The affected areas are still locked down and residents indoor as at the time of filing this report.
