US Condemns Plateau Massacre By Fulani-herdsmen


The U.S. has strongly condemned the attacks in Plateau during which no fewer than 86 people were killed and several others injured.

In a statement by Ms Heather Nauert, Spokesperson for the U.S. Department of State, it said the perpetrators of the attacks should be brought to justice.

“The United States condemns in the strongest possible terms the killing of civilians and destruction of property in Nigeria’s Middle Belt region over the weekend.

“We are concerned by the recent increase in armed violence against civilians and call on all political and community leaders to lend their voices to peace and to work together to find lasting solutions to these rural conflicts.

“We join President Buhari and others in sending our deepest condolences to the affected communities, and in the desire to see the perpetrators brought to justice and to prevent further violence,” Nauert said.

According Mr Terna Tyopev, the Public Relations Officer of the Police Command in Plateau, 50 houses, two cars and 15 motorcycles were burnt in the attacks by herders.

The herdsmen were reported to have invaded Razat, Ruku, Nyarr, Kura and Gana-Ropp villages of Gashish District in Barkin Ladi Local Government Area where the deaths occurred.

The Plateau Government has imposed a dusk to dawn curfew in Riyom, Barkin Ladi and Jos South local government areas following the attacks.

President Muhammadu Buhari, who condemned the attacks, describing the incident as “very painful and regrettable”, also blamed politicians for the massacre.

  1. President buhari and the british government are directly responsible for these kilings and must be held accountable. These deaths are not as a result of communal clashes as the paid media keeps labeling it. All these people being killed across the entire country are not only farmers. It is true that there are some farmers who are killed by the herdsmen but the herdmens are armed by the nigerian government and are told to go and ravage and takeover the communities. The media is failing to talk about all the refuge camps that have been created for the people of the community who have been driven out of their communities. The herdmens and bokoram are a terroist groups armed and supported by buhari and the british government. The british government has been training these fighters for years and helping their beloved fulani ethnic group to islamize the entire country so that british 80% GDP source of revenue keeps flowing from the oil wells found in the land of Indigenous people of biafra. The british government has been doing worse killings of biafrans as did hilter do to the israel jews during the holocaust. The evil british empire has been committing the worse evil to biafrans in many forms because of their evil greed and alliance with the devil. Everyone should boycott anything british made and british airlines. There are other airlines for you to choose.
