Two members of a family were killed and about 50 houses razed in fresh attacks on villages in Riyom and Barkin Ladi Local Government Area of Plateau State yesterday.

The two were killed at Diniyam-Rim of Riyom Local Government while another raid was launched on Rakok and Razat in Barakin Ladi Local Government Area.

Several houses in the villages which were largely uninhabited as a result of previous attacks were said to have been torched by the attackers.

They also set harvested crops and other valuables on fire, according to eye witnesses.

Interim Chairman of Barkin Ladi LG, Mr. Habila Dung in a phone interview said the unknown gunmen stormed the villages in the early hours of yesterday morning destroying whatever they found.

Similarly, the member representing Riyom Constituency in the Plateau State House of Assembly Mr. Daniel Dem confirmed the killings.

He said the two family members were sleeping in an isolated house when they were shot dead while two other family members were injured.
