Local media could decipher from witnesses and officials that the gunmen started attacking the Church of Christ in All Nations (COCIN) at Maiakworigold Maikatako village in Bokkos Local Government Council of Plateau State late on Tuesday

The deaths and injuries which occurred were majorly due to worshipers trying to run in various directions. Most of those injured were eventually rushed to hospitals in Jo and Barkin Ladi

The speaker of the Plateau State House of Assembly, Titus Alams, is of the opinion that the attack attempts to overshadow “sustain the current peace we are enjoying in the state.”

The Speaker also urged security forces to do everything possible to bring those responsible to book

He also warned the youths not to take the law into their hands as a result of the attack

This attack comes at a time when most media observers are beginning to praise the recent peacefulness in Plateau State
