Fifteen persons have been reportedly killed following an alleged invasion of communities in Mangu Local Government Area of Plateau State.

This was disclosed by the Miyetti Allah Cattle Breeders Association of Nigeria (MACBAN) who claimed that 78 houses belonging to their members were burnt while over 2,000 cattle are still missing after the invasion.

Plateau state chairman of MACBAN, Nuru Abdullahi who addressed journalists, said;

“On the invasion of Fulani communities in villages of Mangu, we have recovered 15 bodies killed on Friday. About 78 houses were burnt down. Cattle numbering 2,000 are still missing. This unfortunate thing is moving its head quickly into other LGAs of the state to annihilate Fulani completely in the state.

“There is an intelligence report that there are trained militias recruited and brought to fight and chase all Fulani out of Plateau State in the name of crisis. Therefore, at this point, we are still calling on the federal government to as a matter of urgency put a stop to what is happening in Mangu LGA.

“They should take immediate action before things go out of hand. We are soliciting the FG to take necessary action so that things will not go out of hand. We will not continue watching people killing us and destroying our properties.”

Plateau State Governor, Caleb Mutfwang has already imposed a 24-hour curfew on Mangu LGA to restore law and order and to forestall further loss of lives and property.
