The death toll from last week’s attack on communities in Langtang South Local Government of Plateau State has risen to 70, while no fewer than 7,000 have been displaced.

Member representing Langtang North/South Constituency in the House of Representatives, Hon. Beni Lar, who confirmed this during a visit to the affected parts, said several people were still missing.

Similarly, the state Commissioner of Police, Mr. Chris Olakpe, confirmed that the District Crime Officer, DCO, for the area was still missing and that 20 more corpses had been recovered.

Lar said: “From what I gathered, the Divisional Crime Officer is still missing, seven thousand people were displaced, while almost 70 lost their lives.

“The intention of the attackers was to wipe out the entire inhabitants of the villages for no just reason.”

Addressing displaced persons in different camps at Mabudi, headquarters of the local government, she described the attack as barbaric, noting that they were able to carry out the attack because of the vulnerability of the villages.

She said security men were unable to gain access to the area because of the bad roads and appealed to government to attend to them to open up the locality.

The police commissioner, Olakpe, said: “From the report I got from my men, 20 additional bodies have been recovered and the DCO is still missing.

“But we have not concluded that anything has happened to him. We are still looking for him and hoping that he will be found.” [Vanguard]

    this is the real situation in the country called Nigeria. however, the truth is that the collution btween the yorubas, hausas and the minority tribes in Nigeria to decimate the igbos is a great atrocity that even you will stand to defend whenever is brought to public sphere. it is arant hipocricy. and i tell you, the blood of the innocent igbos is what will make sure nigeria will remain like this till thy kingdom come. if that atrocity is not addressed whatever anybody does is more or less window dressing. God’s vengeance visits the offsprings of those who pepetrated atrocities on innocent people.Ask mr. gowon what is happening in his hometown with regards to fulanis. the first step to fruitful revolution is for the youths of those mentioned tribes whose fathers went on a killing spree to come out and ask their fathers questions regarding their atrocities, by so doing you will observe positive changes in Nigeria
