Eleven people were Tuesday night shot dead by gunmen along Rim, Riyom Local Government Area of northern Plateau State.
The Police Public Relations Office of the Plateau State Police Command, Terna Tyopev, confirmed the incident to Premium Times in a telephone interview Wednesday morning.
“Eleven people who were returning from a weekly village market of Makera were shot dead at about 7:30 p.m., four others are injured.”
