Two teachers have been killed and the vice principal seriously injured when gunmen suspected to be herders invaded BECO Comprehensive School, Kwi, in Riyom local government area of Plateau State.

The Principal of the school, Mr. Dantoro Gyang, who confirmed the attack to Daily Sun, said the staff of the school were on routine meeting at about 2:00 p.m. on Monday when some herdsmen led their cows into the premises for grazing.

Attempts by the security men to confront the herders, angered them and they shot sporadically.

There was stampede and pandemonium to among the staff who came out of the meeting to see what was happening.

“As I am talking to you now, one of those injured is presently receiving treatment at General Hospital Riyom, while the vice principal was taken to Jos University Teaching Hospital.”

President of the Berom Youth Moulders (BYM), Solomon Dalyop, described it as another form of terrorist attack on the people of Plateau State, adding that until open grazing is banned, the herdsmen will continue to terrorize the people of the state and the middle belt as a whole.
