No fewer than 30 people have been killed with houses set ablaze during an attack in Yalwan Zangam Community, a suburb of Jos North Local government area of Plateau State.
Yalwan Zangam, is about 10 kilometers from Jos City Centre and is part of the village that hosts the University of Jos permanent site.
According to the Community leader, Mai Angwa Agida Isa, who confirmed the incident to AIT.live in a telephone conversation, the attackers came at about 8pm on Tuesday.
Isa said they called for help from the security operatives but none came as the attackers had disabled the bridge leading to the community preventing any access to help before launching their attacks and by the time security operatives arrived, it was too late as the attackers had left.
An entire family were burnt to death in their home while others who sustained injuries are being treated in the hospital.
AIT.live has made a number of unsuccessful efforts to reach the Plateau State Police Command for comments on the incident.
