Nigeria’s New Year Eve is becoming a day to watch out for killings and this is saddening.

It lays emphasises on the need for the government to do more to secure its people.

In Plateau State, December 31, 2018 was not a period of fun for people in Nding Susut village in Barkin Ladi Local Government Area.

They had been startled by the shout and noise of attackers alleged to be herdsmen with arms, that had come in the night to unleash mayhem.

Seven persons were reported killed in the community and over 300 houses were burnt.
