22 Killed In Fresh Plateau Violence

At least 22 people have been killed in fresh sectarian clashes in north central Nigeria, the military said on Friday.

Violence flared after the discovery of a corpse of a missing person in Wadata, Wase local government area of Plateau state, North Central Nigeria, local residents said.

Fighting broke out between the Fulani and Tarok speaking ethnic groups after the decomposed corpse was found which led to reprisals that claimed 21 persons.
Local resident Nuru Shehu told Reuters that 22 bodies were found after the violence, which began on Tuesday night.

Confirming the incident, Military spokesman Ibrahim Saidu Mustapha “I am confirming to you that nine people were killed in a clash between the Fulani and the Tarok people,”
