Hundred of lives saved in Jos,as planned attack get foiled



Hundreds of lives were saved in Jos, Plateau State today,
as security agencies foiled a planned attack by suspected Fulani
herdsmen on a local church.
The gunmen had reportedly targeted the church at Rantya Low Cost
area of Nyago Gyel district of Jos South LGA of the state. They
came from the hills and were about to launch their deadly mission, but
one of the church’s guards spotted them.
They bandits immediately started shooting in the direction of the
church with about 1,000 worshippers; however, men of the Special
Task Force were quick to intercept.
An eyewitness, Mr. Godwin Okoko, said that but for the vigilance of
the police and soldiers attached to the STF, who responded to the
distress calls by the worshippers, the gunmen would have succeeded in
carrying out a mass massacre.
The development was said to have created tension around the locality
as churches around the area hurriedly ended their worship.
Plateau State Police Commissioner, Mr. Chris Olakpe, confirmed
the incident. He said no life was lost, but none of the gunmen were
arrested as they managed to escape.
