Dayeng Emmanuel Bello, Chairman of the Youth Movement in Mangu District, Plateau state, sheds light on the violent crisis involving herders and Mangu youths. Bello explained that an individual reported being attacked by herders around 5:40 on that day. According to gathered information, the herders, after crossing the road with their cattle, waited by the roadside to launch attacks on other people during the incident.
Bello highlighted the audacity of the attacks, occurring in broad daylight between 5 to 6 pm, in close proximity to a military checkpoint. He called for accountability, urging the authorities to bring perpetrators to justice given the reported incidents and their proximity to a military presence.
In his interview with AIT, he stated, ”Certain herders used to go to rear their cattle. So when they finished rearing their cattle around 5:40 pm that day, I received a distress call from just within Mangu. The caller informed me that he was attacked by the herders trying to take their cattle back to their home.
I had to send one of my personnel to the scene. The information we got was that the herders, after crossing the road with their cattle, waited at the roadside to attack people. This series of attacks happened around last year November. ..WATCH. THE FULL VIDEO. HERE>>>

Perpetrators of such acts should have been brought to book, considering the fact that it was close to the military checkpoint.”.…CONTINUE FULL READING>>>
