Eleven corpses have been buried in a mass grave following the attacks on over 20 communities by gunmen in Mangu local government area of Plateau State.
Recall that about 125 bodies were earlier recovered and buried, and yet to be ascertained number of people are still missing as over 20,000 are displaced and in dire need of humanitarian support.
The bodies of the latest victims, who were buried yesterday, were said to have decomposed as the attackers continue to lay siege in many villages, preventing residents from having access to search for missing persons.
A resident, who gave his name as Michael, said, “The 11 bodies were given mass burial at the two communities of Dungmunan and Jwak Maitumbi villages before the bereaved families returned to internally displaced camps in Mangu town”.
