At least two students were killed by gunmen suspected to be Fulani herdsmen when they stormed a school in Barakin Ladi Local Government Area of Plateau State.

The suspected Fulani gunmen, according to SUNDAY PUNCH, attacked Dalo Memorial High School around Hiepang, in Barkin Ladi LGA of Plateau State on Saturday at about 1pm.

Executive Director of Stefanos Foundation, Mr. Mark Lipdo, said the gunmen shot two students, killing one and injuring the other.

They were also alleged to have shot and killed a farmer, who was working on his farmland and fled in the direction of Bisichi village in the same LGA.

The Media Officer of the Special Task Force on the Plateau, Capt. Ikedichi Iweha, blamed the Foron communities for the misfortune that befell them because they rejected the deployment of soldiers to their communities.

According to Iweha, the activities in the area were caused by criminals, which the STF would have contained, but the communities felt that they could protect themselves.

He said, “You remember that it was in these same areas that some cows were stolen and some herdsmen went missing. But these communities have refused the deployment of our men to their areas. They think that they have the wherewithal to protect themselves.”

Iweha exonerated STF personnel from any involvement in the criminality in the area, adding that despite the communities refusing STF deployment, the personnel have been responding to emergencies in those areas.
