A 30-year-old man has been confirmed dead after he was attacked by gunmen, suspected to be herdsmen, in Bassa Local Government Area of Plateau State.
Wakili Ayuba was killed at Hukke village in the LGA on Saturday.
Reports said Wakili was on his way home from Ancha community in Miango district of the LGA when he was attacked by the gunmen who had laid ambush for him around 7pm.
It was further learnt that before Wakili’s murder, he had lost his pregnant wife in a similar attack by the gunmen who killed her while on the farm in June this year.
