This appeal came after a socio-cultural organisation for indigenous tribes of the people of Plateau state, Plateau Initiative for Development and Advancement of the Natives (PIDAN), vowed to retaliate if they are attacked again.
The group made the threat while addressing journalists in Jos, the state capital, at the weekend over the ugly incident on the Plateau within the first and second quarter of 2018. National President of the body, Dr Aboi Madaki, disclosed that not less than 219 natives of the state were killed by herders in four local government councils of the state within the past 4 months.
Madaki said the systematic attacks and killings of innocent citizens in the state by herders has been on for a long time and became more intense in the month of May and June. He said that the previous attacks and killings took form of gorilla and ambush in nature with guns and machete. He said the villages that were always under attack are Barkinladi, Riyom ,Bassa and Bokkos local government councils of the state, disclosing that not less than 54 villagers have been attacked within the last six months of this year with not less than over 219 natives dead with properties worth billions of naira destroyed by the rampaging marauders .
The PIDAN President warned that his organization, which is representing all ethnic nationalities on the Plateau, would “no longer tolerate any further attack on Plateau natives by the herders.” He wondered why last week’s attacks on 11 villagers could last for several hours,while was no intervention from the security forces in charge of internal security operations on the Plateau.
