Representatives of communities where killings took place last Tuesday in Mangu Local Government Area of Plateau State, North-Central Nigeria say they have buried over 125 corpses from the simultaneous attacks carried out by suspected herders.
They also told journalists in Jos, the State capital that the situation is a clear indication that the police have demonstrated low capacity and political will to secure minority tribes in Nigeria as several people are still missing after the deadly attack.
The attack and killing of dozens of people in a number of communities which lastest for four days has continued to send shock waves across the entire state with the affected areas making demands for a special court that will address their grievances and deliver justice.
The group also lamented over the humanitarian crisis in the affected communities, describing it as overwhelming with a call on the government to take full responsibility for the education of children below 10 years who have lost their parents as a result of the deadly attack.
Meanwhile, the State Chairman of the Miyetti Allah Cattle Breeders Association of Nigeria, MACBAN, Muhammad Nura has responded to insinuations that Fulani herders are responsible for the killings by saying they are equally victims of the violence engulfing the communities. He is calling on the authorities to find a lasting solution to the killings
