Probe Plateau Attack, Amnesty International Urges FG

Amnesty International has called for an investigation into the security lapses that enabled the attacks in Bokkos and Barki-Ladi Local Government Areas of Plateau State.

According to the organisation, over 140 people were killed by gunmen across 20 villages in the two LGAs.

In a statement, the AI Country Director, Isa Sanusi, says their investigation shows that the armed attackers operated for more than 48 hours moving from one village to another.

Mr. Sanusi said President Tinubu must set up an independent panel to investigate the failure of security agencies to repel the attack on the villages hours after they were attacked.

He also noted that despite several promises by the president to curb insecurity in the country, the attacks in Benue, Zamfara, Sokoto and Katsina showed President Tinubu was paying lip service to the security of lives and properties.
