The crisis that erupted last week at Wadata district of Wase Local Government Council of Plateau State in which over 20 persons were reportedly killed may have spilled into Lamba Wakat district of the council, resulting in the death of two in a fresh attack.

Scores of others were also reportedly injured, and over 200 cows rustled.

A source from the village, who confirmed the attack, said Fulani herds men struck at the early hours of Sunday, killing two persons and injuring several others, adding that this development has created serious tension in the locality.

Also confirming the attack, the village head, Alhaji Haruna Mohammed, who spoke to newsmen on phone, said the residents of Lamba and the surrounding villages have been living under serious tension since the crisis that broke out in the LGA since Thursday.
