Suspected bandits reportedly killed over 40 people in an attack on Zurak village in the Bashar District of Wase Local Government Area, Plateau State. 

The attack occurred on Monday evening, leaving several houses ablaze and the community in shock.

Residents of Zurak, who confirmed the incident to PUNCH Online on Tuesday, stated that the attack happened around 7 pm while villagers were engaged in their regular activities. Due to the poor communication network in the area, reporting the incident was delayed.

Sahpi’i Sambo, a youth leader in the area, detailed the attack: “The bandits arrived at the community riding on two to three motorcycles, armed with sophisticated weapons, and started shooting sporadically at everyone.”

The violent incident prompted various reactions on social media.
