Tension In Plateau As Bandits Gun Down 7 In Popular Market

At least seven people have been reportedly shot dead, while many others sustained injuries, after some bandits invaded a market in Zurak Campani, Wase Local Government Area of Plateau State.

Recall that the attack occurred around 2:00 pm on Sunday.

A source, Abdullahi Hussaini, a youth leader in the area, said that the gunmen arrived at the market and suddenly opened fire on the people transacting businesses.

“The gunmen arrived at the market in their numbers on motorcycles.

“They started shooting sporadically, killing seven people instantly while many others were injured. The gunmen successfully launched the attack and fled without any resistance because people were not expecting any security threat at the moment.
