Suspected gunmen have killed nine persons and injured 20 in the Ser community of Bokkos council of Plateau State.
A Fulani militia was blamed for the attack, which took place on Tuesday night.
The locals said the attackers burnt over 30 houses, including harvested crops, cars, and motorcycles, among others.
Mr. Sylvester Wallangko, who represents Bokkos in the state House of Assembly, reportedly lost relatives and property in the attack.
Wallangko called for more synergy between the locals and security agencies in order to curb the attacks.
The community has buried those killed in the attack in a mass grave, with Wallangko in tears as the bodies were lowered into the ground yesterday.
