Nigerian security forces announced on Monday that they killed the suspected perpetrators of the recent killings in Plateau State.

The special task force on Jos crisis, tagged Operation Safe Haven, said it shot and killed five persons suspected to be assailants who attacked and killed 19 persons in Ancha, a village in Bassa Local Government Area of Plateau State.

Adamu Umar, media officer of the task force, said, “Apart from the five persons that were killed by our men, some were injured.”

He said one of the members of task force died in the encounter while another was injured but added that he was responding to treatment.

Mr. Umar, a captain in the Nigeria Army, revealed that the entire Ancha village is still dominated by members of the task force who have since commenced day and night patrol and are combing the area in search of the remaining assailants.

The killing in Ancha is the first of such in Plateau in several months.

PREMIUM TIMES reported the killings with residents and the police saying it was likely carried out by Fulani herdsmen in retaliation for the death of a Fulani boy.

President Muhammadu Buhari has since condemned the attack, and urged security agencies to apprehend the perpetrators.

      Imam is working for the Fulanis, just say Sai Babarian. Last week some Odua people were caught red handed with human parts for food and rituals and you are claiming that Buhari is working. You mean he is working for Fulanis ati Yoruba cannibals?

      • Julius

        Moron, An Igbo cannibal who killed a young lady and took her stomach out , was re-arrested yesterday. I guess you didn’t read about that.

  • PolyGon2013

    Good job. Please kill all of them.

    • Frank Bassey

      You self. What are the names of those killed, if they are identified as the killers? Can’t you reason?

      • Tunji Olarewaju

        You sef . What are the names of the three killed and thirty wounded biafools?

        • Frank Bassey

          Operating in a region suffocating in the putrefied air of congealed blood of victims of Islamic fundamentalism and extremism masquerading as Fulani Herdsmen; a culture of violence, killing and homosexuality; celebrating baby-girl marriage as an achievement; in an environment controlled by the spirit of demonic Being called A….h; why should the names of the mules not be made public? Lazy nincompoops.

          • Tunji Olarewaju

            You just succintly and eloquently described your region and yourself. Clap for yourself

          • Netanyahu

            yirubaaaaaaa. Wetin?

          • Julius

            Canniballlllllllll, u don finish the human meat for lunch yet ?

          • Julius

            There u go ! smdh @ you.

          • AFRICANER

            The world has to do something about these devils!

      • Julius

        lolz, you can’t help but exposing yourself for who and what you are. Pity !. I wonder why you wanna know the name, their date of birth and their origin. I can guess why tho.

        • Frank Bassey

          If you can believe such an nebulous story, you will believe anything. Pity!

  • AFRICANER

    Na lie!

    Pictures? Video?

    Even if it’s true, it’s a violation of human rights to kill people without a judicial process, to find them guilty beyond a reasonable doubt, to a moral certainty.

    If this terrorist army thinks they will continue doing this, it’s time Trump aims at Nigerian Muslim Terrorism.

    • Nicodemus

      My brother don’t mind them. Fake news, They didn’t kill any body. The Fulani militants are gathering momentum but God will deliver His people.

    • Tunji Olarewaju

      I’m sure even if you are shown the pictures and videos you will still have one denigrating thing to say or the other. We know your yibo type. But, you will believe it when one biafool claims three idiots were killed and thirty wounded by the brave Nigerian Army, when the biaidiots chose to commit hara kiri, by attacking an armed convoy with sticks and broken bottles after taking ogogoro and some hard drugs-the yibos stock-in-trade – (thank God I’m not the commander of those soldiers, you fools would have been talking of three thousand dead and none wounded!),without pictures and videos of the dead (only one lucky biafool shot in the leg). Idiota fantastica

      • Cornelius Jelili Ajibola Olanr

        People especially our igbo brothers choose to believe only what pleases their fancy. Thank God PMB is alive, yet they still assume he’s dead. Olorun ko si Leyin Alaboosi. God doesn’t support the unrighteous. A whole race with similar distorted views. It’s very pitiable

        • Abdullahi

          Please Cornelius do not adress them as igbo brothers but rather igbo enemies because they are enemies for real.

      • Julius

        Abi ooo..ma da won lohun jor. Na so dem be.

    • Julius

      If it was in biafraud there would be 100 fake dead bodies on video…and you would have believed it…abi

      • AFRICANER

        Plateau is now Biafra, if Biafra means a fight against Islamic terrorism.

        • Julius

          Oh, remember your leader, the emperor kanu said part of that state is biafraud. By the way, where is he now..after-all he said whoever come for him will never leave biafraud alive. Now he is hiding, Interesting, ain’t it?

    • 0tile

      This story is about Fulani government and its duplicity, but somehow empty oduafraudian touts will drag in Biafra in a senseless way to distract. There is no single day Oduafradians don’t talk about Biafra. They pretend that Oduduwa Republic is not important to them. While honorable people like FFK, Gov Fayose and others are working assiduously to restore the dignity of Yoruba race empty fraudsters and semi illiterates continue for foul up the atmosphere.

      • AFRICANER

        Most of those posting as Yoruba, are Islamic terrorist propagandists.

        Even though some Yoruba are indistinguishable from northerners.

        • 0tile

          Most of them are really Yoruba moslems supporting their Fulani islamic masters. A good Yoruba Christian man or woman will not support islamic evil. They are good Christian family people like us. They don’t push their yara out on the street to go begging and touting. Yoruba touts are Muslims.

  • Frank Bassey

    What are the names of those killed/injured? What is their state/LG of origin? This sounds somehow.

    • Mazi Efuna

      Don’t be deceived no one was killed. If any Nigerian official, be him police, army or anyone one working under the current Fulani government tells you to stop, please run. It is hard to believe the level of lie by senior citizens of a country. That made up country is finally destroyed and it is a complete asshole and an egg head would keep any hope for Nigeria

  • Rev

    This is a cover up by Buhari to pretend that he is responding to the fulani herdsmen crises. Mr Buhari, why did it take you this long to respond to a blatant national crises. Nigerians, it will be disastrous, if this man wins a second term. The Fulanis will run the whole country over, because there will be no third term. They played a fast one on Nigerians the first time with dead witchcraft brooms…This time around, even if the Naira becomes 1 dollar, Nigerians will not vote for the Dauran. Go back to Daura and take care of your cows. Haven’t you achieved your dream of becoming president, after you were booted out by a military coup? What else do you want from Nigerians Mr Buhari. If you claim to love Nigeria, which is a bogus lie…You love your brethren, your cows, their cows and every thing associated with you. Please go home and prepare to meet your allah.

    • Baba B

      You seem to forget you only have one vote. So my advise is for you to get ready to traverse the length and breath of Nigeria with your own money to campaign against him.As hatred has blinded you to a situation where all that comes out of your head is negativity towards the president.

      • Rev

        Why don’t you go and build your own Arewa republic based on the teachings of the prophet Muhammad and leave southerners alone. I mean, honestly. At this point in time, most southern Nigerians have discovered the true nature of the Northerner. We don’t even want to campaign or anything. Buhari can be your president for life. Infact we shall come to his inauguration. Just leave us alone…

    • Julius

      And your moniker is Rev…go figure !

  • Omooba

    Rather than apprehend, the JTF killed the alleged perpetrators. EOD. (End of Discussion)

    Shango Eh. Buhari’s treacherous relatives are calling Aisha suicide bomber from Yola, but Oduafraudian touts are working hard to convince us that their fellow traitors are not referring to Aisha. What a dishonest race.
