It is a dire strait for the victims who have been caught in the web of the ceaseless killings in Plateau State, especially the women who have to run with their children and household items while trying to escape from the war fronts each time one breaks out. The unfolding tragedy for women has been so severe for them to bear because unlike men, who can run with barefoot to escape being slain, women and girls in the war-stricken areas of Plateau have other vital needs to care for while trying to escape the assassins’ bullets. Women have always been the victims of the many senseless killings in Plateau State. They are either killed along with their children or left widows as their husbands get killed. While displaced, they are further traumatised by a lack of basic needs including sanitary pads. As a result of many assaults unleashed in the area in the past weeks, women have been thrown into disarray and they are distraught at the moment. The displaced persons, mostly women and children from the recent attacks in the Mangu Local Government Area of the state, are pleading for urgent help to enable them to at least regain their bearing and return home. They are also becoming more and more uncomfortable with the unfriendly weather conditions which make them sick, made worse by their inability to get fresh and unadulterated food from their farms, which have been deserted for many months as a result of being displaced by attacks. The attacks/statistics It will be recalled that starting from May 15, 2023 there was a weeklong attack by suspected Fulani mercenaries on almost 30 communities in Mangu LGA. Over 100 people, mostly women and children, were killed and over 10,000 people displaced. Communities attacked included: Gwet, Mutong, Bwor, Komtul, Vodni, Dangdai, Changal, Kombili, Washna (Jwakchom), Larkas, Ajing, Fushi, Bin Kwahas, Manja, Murish, Dungmunan, Kyampus, Jwakmaitumbi, Kantoma, Alohom, Gaude, Danhausa, Kikyau, Gongong, Gudum, Tyop, Farin Kasa, Kubwat and Fungzai. As at the last count, no fewer than 879 men, 2,177 women, and 2,966 children have been located in a few camps in Barkin Ladi and Mangu LGAs. About 1,977 others are in churches and school halls in Jos metropolis and Pankshin LGA. The number of those being camped in nearby Bogoro in Bauchi State and some others is yet to be determined as they take temporary abodes with their relatives and friends.
