Bandits on the offensive were on Wednesday repelled in a community in Plateau State, North-Central Nigeria. The terrorists, riding on motorcycles, went for another attack on Butura village in the Bokkos Local Government Area of the state where they massacred over 200 persons around Christmas Eve period in 2023.

They were reportedly repelled by a resistant militant group set up by the community, as tweeted by Citizens Observer. However, the police said its personnel repelled the attack.

“Early this morning, while the world’s attention was on the #bomb explosion in #Ibadan, the #Fulani terrorists went for an attack on Butura, a village in Bokkos, the place where they killed over 200 #Christians on Christmas eve, but met a formidable resistance from the locals.

“That is what we want from the people of Middle Belt — arm yourselves and defend your land.

“Continue to organise yourselves in defence of your land; track every terrorist hideout in your locality and dislodge all of them.

“Those cowards are protected by the government; in actual fact, they can not fight without government covering up for them,”
the tweet read.

The Plateau State Police Command, however, told SaharaReporters that the police and not locals repelled the bandits.

The spokesperson for the command, Alfred Alabo said, “Yes, there was a little disturbance there which our men repelled and they repelled dutifully. But we’re still gathering some facts, we want to do that before approaching the media so that we don’t give them wrong information. There’s a lot of fake information going on there.”
