TODAY IN NIGERIAN HISTORY

on

– On this day in 2013 in Jos, about 32 people were killed in three villages in Langtang South Local Government Area of Plateau State in an attack allegedly coordinated by suspected Fulani herdsmen.

The attackers allegedly invaded Bolgang, Karkashi and Magama villages shooting indiscriminately. They were said to have gone with motorbikes after those that tried to escape. Some of those killed were said to be students writing their National Examinations Council, NECO, examinations, while several houses and vehicles were burnt. It was learnt that the attack was launched from nearby Shikal village, where they reportedly gathered days earlier.

Majority of those killed at Magama were said to be the aged and children, while nine people were reported killed at Bolgang, which was completely razed.
