Residents of Kuru in Jos South local government area of Plateau state, North Central Nigeria went to the streets in protest of an attack on their community, which resulted in the death of one person and the injury of another by unknown gunmen.
The angry youths said they were out to express their anger over the killing a member of their community in an attack on Sunday night that left another person injured.
The protesters blocked the highway that linked the National Institute for Policy and Strategic Studies, Kuru before members of the Special Task Force (STF) intervened to prevent further breakdown of law and order within the area.
Residents say the incessant attacks in villages around Barkin Ladi, Riyom and lately Jos South local government areas need to be addressed by the STF as the attackers are becoming frequent with the same professional accuracy and commando type of killings and escaping while no one is apprehended. They suggested that efforts should be made to curtail further occurrence in order to restore public confidence in security operatives.
In the video below, the father of the deceased, Clement Dagwat and the Media Coordinator of the STF narrate how the attackers invade the community.
