4 He said 6 other people were injured, while some houses were set on fire.

5 However, the Fulani leadership under the aegis of the Miyetti Allah Cattle Breeders Association of Nigeria, MACBAN, denied carrying out the attack.

6 MACBAN state chapter president Muhammad Nuru Abdullahi said in a statement that he was surprised by the unfortunate attack that killed 18 people in the village of Ancha de Bassa LGA.

7 “While we condemn this attack, we frown at the high-level accusation against our people, the Fulani, that they carried out the attack.

8 We view this accusation by the Irigwe National Advertising Association for Development, Malison David, as an outright falsehood, lacking merit, and more hype than substance.

9 “It will be recalled that the Irigwe people have recently burned more than 10 houses of the Rukuba people, another set of three houses belonging to the Chawai, and what about their atrocities against other people.

10 “It is disturbing to say that every time the people of Irigwe are attacked or killed, they are quick to blame us.

11 “We challenge both the Irigwe People and anyone else to prove their claims against our people.

12 “We call on all Fulani to remain calm, love peace and respect the law. We also urge them to report any suspicious movement of people to the security agencies, “he said.

13 Operation Safe Haven, OPSH spokesperson Ishaku Takwa confirmed the attack but could not determine the death toll.

14 Takwa, a major, said late Tuesday that Operation Safe Haven troops received a distress call from an attack on the Acha community in the Bassa local government area of ​​Plateau.

15 “The troops responded quickly and mobilized towards the town.

16 “Upon reaching the community, the attackers had fled the town.

17 “Houses were destroyed and some villagers lost their lives during the attack,” he said.

18 Takwa said Operation Safe Haven troops are on the trail of the assailants and details of the manhunt will be available later.

19 State Governor Simon Lalong has also condemned the attack.

20 In a statement by his spokesman, Makut Macham, Lalong expressed deep sadness at the attack, “which left many dead and property destroyed.”

21 He ordered security agencies to make sure to catch the attackers at all costs, as bringing those perpetrators to justice is the only way to stop the barbaric killings.

22 While sympathizing with the families of the dead and survivors, the Governor ordered the Plateau State Emergency Management Agency and the Peacebuilding Agency to relocate and assess the damage, as well as to offer immediate humanitarian interventions. .

23 Meanwhile, the governor praised security forces for arresting a group of kidnappers and rescuing some victims in Barkin Ladi, describing the action as comforting and proof that criminals will not be allowed to rest at Plateau State.

24 He led a further investigation and the arrest of suspects fleeing for prosecution, and promised that those found guilty will face the law, which prescribes the death penalty for convicted kidnappers.
