Yet to be identified gunmen on Monday 3rd June 2018 killed two people in Kwatas village (15km west of Plateau State University) in Bokkos LGA.

One of the victims was Mrs. Patience Christopher, 28 –who was reportedly shot in her residence with her husband, Mr. Christopher Bulus in what appeared to be a robbery attack.

Mrs. Christopher died on the spot while her husband survived with bullet wounds, local sources say.

While her corpse was being prepared for burial on Tuesday however, another corpse of a middle-age man was found near the road leading to Kwatas village, it was gathered.

The victim, Mr. Reuben Bulus was said to have been found lying dead with bullet wounds on his body.

A blood stained machete was found near him but it was not clear if he was shot while trailing the gunmen or he was part of the gang.

He was however said to have been sighted in the village hours before the incident which occurred at about 7pm local time.

Officials have not commented on the attack which residents say could have been perpetrated by a gang of local herders.
