Gunmen Raid Plateau Hospital, Kill Guard, Injure 3

On Monday of this week, some unknown gunmen raided the General Hospital in Barkin Ladi Local Government Area of Plateau State, where they wrecked havoc, injuring some, while claiming some lives in the process.

Sources said that the security man on duty was shot dead, while three other persons were injured, amongst whom were a hospital staff and a police officer.

In his comments on the incident, the President of Gashshi District Development Association, Francis Chong said it was strange and unimaginable that a health facility that accommodates all tribes and religions would be attacked without just cause.

“This is a novel attack which is not comprehensible at all; it is not yet clear what the motives of the attackers could attack a hospital where people of all shades of life converge for treatment,” he said.

Chong, however, noted that the two staff of the hospital are receiving treatment from the hospital in Barkin Ladi.

As of today, the State Police Command is yet to comment on the incident involving the police officer.
