Gunmen suspected to be Fulani militia have killed six miners and injured two in Wereng community, Riyom Local Government Area of Plateau state.

The latest attack occurred almost a week after eight persons were brutally killed at a mining site in Kuru, Jos South Local Government Area of the state. 

It was gathered that the eight miners were waylaid at about 7:45 pm on Thurday, April 15, on their way home from a mining site.   

A source close to the community told Nigerian Tribune that the miners stopped at Wereng community to rest before they would proceed with their journey to the next village.

“While they were resting the gunmen numbering about 15 who probably have been monitoring them appeared and shot at them at close range. They killed six of them on the spot while two sustained injuries, now receiving treatment at the Christian Hospital in Vom, Jos South local government area,” the source said.
