Soldiers Reportedly Kill 30 in Plateau on Revenge Mission

At least 30 people were killed on Saturday when soldiers stormed some villages in Plateau State following the alleged killing of four soldiers by some unknown persons in the area.

In retaliation to the soldiers’ death, some aggrieved soldiers invaded Kadarko, Kurmi and Wadata villages of Wase local government area of the state, The Citizen Online reports.

However, Spokesman for the Special Task Force, Ikedichi Iweha, says the allegations are false, and insists that the soldiers did not hurt anybody.
According to him, “following frequent attacks on communities around the Plateau-Taraba border by some militiamen, the STF and soldiers from the 3 Armoured Division of the Nigerian Army had been carrying out operations targeted at flushing out the militiamen, and soldiers who were working to protect innocent civilians could not turn around to kill the same people.”
