Violent youths invade Plateau Government House [VIDEO]

Reports said the protest started peacefully but later became violent as protesters took over the gates of the Government House.

According to Daily Post, the protesters first went around the major streets of Jos before heading to the seat of government to register their grievances to the state Governor, Simon Lalung.

It was gathered that the protest started peacefully but later became violent as protesters took over the gates of the Government House, leading to gunshots inside the Government House.

As at the time of filing this report, the protesters are said to have refused to leave the Government House.

On Sunday, June 24, 2018, dozens of villagers were killed in Razat, Ruku, Nyarr, Kura and Gana-Ropp villages of Gashish District in Barkin Ladi local government area of the state by suspected herdsmen.

More than 500 persons have been killed by the herders in the ethnically and religiously diverse middle belt region since the beginning of this year.
