Plateau Community Rocked by Violent Protest Many vehicles were burned and several people were thought slain in the Akpata district of the state on Tuesday night.
On Tuesday night, a violent protest shook Gada-Biu in Plateau State’s Jos North Local Government Area, as residents demonstrated their unhappiness with the area’s deplorable state of insecurity.
An eyewitness told reporters that the protest began in the evening and gradually deteriorated, with protestors burning automobiles.
According to the informant, the conflict escalated after security was sent, and gunshots were heard.
However, at the time of reporting this storey, it was unclear whether anyone had been hurt.
“It started this (Tuesday) evening and the presence of security operatives worsened the situation as they started shooting. But we can’t say yet if anyone was injured. By tomorrow morning, more details would have emerged.
“Such protests are not new in Gada-Biu as residents of the area have since grown tired of the killings in their area,” the source said
