6 people shot dead by Nigerian soldiers during protest in Bokkos, Plateau State (Graphic Photos)

Six people were shot dead by men of the Nigerian Army in Bokkos while protesting the attack on “Danan and Tasha Makarfi” villages by suspected Fulani herdsmen yesterday night.

Unknown assailants had stormed the villages to carry out attacks days after the traditional ruler of Bokkos and his family members were killed by suspected herdsmen. *graphic photo after the cut*
Angry youth, earlier today barricaded all major roads leading to the area in protest against the attack. Soldiers serving with the Special Task Force in Jos opened fire on the protesters, killing six, and leaving many others with varying degree of injuries.

"The protest that was stage today was peaceful. Nobody was molested," writes D'yong Mangut, who shared the photo. "No house was burnt and neither was anybody killed, yet the Army boys choose to send six of them to their untimely grave with undisclosed numbers injured and currently undergoing treatment in the hospital."
