  • Militia group kills three soldiers, two vigilantes in Nasarawa

    At least three soldiers and two members of a vigilante group have been killed by a militia group terrorizing parts of Nasarawa State.

    DAILY POST learnt that the incident occurred when the assailants ambushed the soldiers in the Katakpa community of Toto local government area of the state.

    Chairman of the LGA, Abdullahi Tashas, and the state lawmaker representing Ugya-Umaisha constituency, Ibrahim Saad, confirmed the development to AIT.

    According to them, the soldiers were on a peace mission to the troubled Katakpa area when they were unfortunately murdered.

    They explained that the soldiers were deployed to ensure peace in the area following sustained attacks on Toto communities by the militia group when they were allegedly ambushed and killed by the same Bassa militia.

    DAILY POST gathered that Bassa and Egbira communities in the Toto LGA have been at war over boundary demarcation despite several meetings called by the State Government to end the clashes.

    The Nigerian army is yet to react to the incident as of the time of filing this report.
