The death toll in the Plateau massacre could have risen higher if not for the kind and timely intervention of an Imam in Inghar Yerwa village.

According to BBC, men and women in the 11 communities that were attacked, took to their heels with their children to the neighboring communities for safety.

While they were running, the Imam saw them and decided to open his home so they can hide from their attackers.

He kept the men in the mosque while the women and children he kept in his home.

Over 100 persons, including children, were killed by the suspected herdsmen.
