Reports say that gunmen numbering about 50 attempted to
attack Kumbul Village but meant a strong resistance from
members of the Special Task Force in Plateau which killed 5 of
the attackers.

Residents of  Kumbul village said they also put up a spirited
resistance to repel the attackers until they (attackers) ran away
due to the superior gun battle with members of the STF.

The spokesperson of the Special Task Force in Plateau, Salisu
Mustapha, confirmed the incident saying “The attackers intended
to attack Wase town, but they were repelled by our troops. They
burnt a few houses and looted properties.”
