Fulani Herdsmen strike again in Jos. Kill family of three

Two nights ago, attackers suspected to be Fulani herdsmen, killed a family of three in Wereng Village in Kuru Station of Riyom Local Government Area of Plateau State.

Philip Francis, his wife Simi, and their young daughter Nera, were butchered to death around 11pm on Tuesday Dec 27th as they slept in their home.

Philip's parents, who lived in the same house, survived the attack. The father was not around when the herdsmen came and the mother who slept in a separate room from the slain family managed to escape through the window to get help when she realised what was happeneing to her son, daughter in law and grandchild.

The attackers fled after committing the dastardly act. No one could tell where the killers came from and why this family was targeted.

Reacting to the attack, the special adviser to Governor Jonah Jang of Plateau State, Mr. Ayuba Pam, said the government was very sad over the incident. “It is very sad that this happening at the time when government had intensified efforts and sustaining the peace in the State. When I got the distress call in the night, I was very disappointed at this pre-planned attack still persisting in the state. Government has kept faith in providing security but some people are still bent on ensuring that the problem in the State continues.”

If the attackers fled and no one could tell where they came from, how the heck can they be sure they were 'Fulani Herdsmen'?

Those animals, Boko Haram, are not ghosts or spirits. Human beings are behind Boko Haram. We must keep highlighting and bringing to world attention the atrocities being committed by northern leaders through Boko Haram in the name of Islam.
