Some women of Farin Lamba community in Jos South Local Government Area of Plateau on Monday staged a protest over alleged recent killings in the community.
The women, who all appeared in black clothing, also blocked the ever-busy Jos-Akwanga road, preventing vehicular movement on the expressway.
The Police Public Relations Officer of the police command in the state, Alfred Alabo, who confirmed the incident, said the command had deployed security personnel to the community to ensure law and order
“Our men are on the ground and I don’t want to disturb them to get the situation on the ground. So I will give you the facts soon. Since it is a protest, we have mobilized our men to give them cover and ensure, that there is no further breakdown of law and order in the area,” he said.
However, one of the women, Christy Gyang, claimed that gunmen killed six people on Wednesday night in the community.
“For days we have experienced a series of attacks and killings in this community and just yesterday, around 8 p.m., they attacked and killed six people. So we have come out to protest because we are no longer safe and to call on the government to help us,” she said.
A Mr James Davou, who claimed that his three siblings were among those allegedly killed, also claimed that his brothers were killed along with three others at a mine site. He also claimed that the attackers took away all their belongings and other work tools.
