Two soldiers killed in renewed Fulani-farmer violence

At least two soldiers were killed on Wednesday in renewed violence between herders and farmers in central Nigeria’s Plateau state.

The soldiers had been sent to quell the violence between the Miango community and herdsmen at Rafiki Village, but came under attack.

Two of them were killed during a fierce battle, while two other soldiers were wounded and rushed to a Military Hospital in Jos.

Reports indicate that two policemen and some other civilians were also killed, with many wounded and some houses burned to the ground.

This is the second week of clashes in the volatile Plateau state. The Nigerian Army in a statement said 23 dead bodies were discovered in Mararaba Dare area after gunmen opened fire.

Seven suspects have been arrested in connection with the clashes. Meanwhile, the Plateau state government has ordered movement restriction and impose dusk to dawn curfew on the area.
