Following the ongoing unrest in Plateau State, Miyetti Allah Cattle Breeders Association of Nigeria (MACBAN), has said that 15 people were killed when gunmen invaded their communities in the Mangu Local Government Area of Plateau State.
It also said 78 houses belonging to their members were razed while over 2,000 cattle were still missing after the invasion.
The state chairman of the group, Nuru Abdullahi disclosed this to newsmen in Jos, the state capital. He said, “On the invasion of Fulani communities in villages of Mangu, we have recovered 15 bodies killed on Friday. About 78 houses were burnt down. Cattle numbering 2,000 are still missing.
