There are news reports of a  fresh attack, late Monday night, at Rotsu village of Irigwe Chiefdom in Bassa Local Government Area of Plateau State, in which one person died and about 30 houses were razed.

This came as the Operation Safe Haven said it will investigate the purported involvement of its personnel in Nkyie Doghwro village attack, where 29 persons were killed.

Media sources gathered also that the personnel have been withdrawn and sent to the Operation Safe Haven headquarters for questioning, especially when there was curfew restricting residents’ movements at night. This is just as the state Police Command, yesterday, announced a deployment of more units of the Police Mobile Force as well as surveillance helicopter to patrol the troubled villages of Irigwe Chiefdom in Bassa council.

Also, it was learned that Rotsu, few kilometres away from Nkyie Doghwro, where 29 persons had earlier been killed, recorded such minimal casualty because the village had been deserted following series of attacks on neighbouring communities in the past one week.

Though only a life was lost, but properties worth millions of Naira, including farm produce, were lost to the attack. Meanwhile, the Minister of Youth and Sports, Mr. Solomon Dalung, has expressed sadness over killings in the two separate attacks in Jos North and Barkin Ladi.

Reacting to the barbaric attacks, the minister wondered why such attacks were becoming more rampant despite the presence of armed personnel, including the Joint Task Force. Police report
