Four travellers have been attacked and killed while many were injured Wednesday morning at Bida Bidi Junction of Jos North Local Government Area of Plateau State.

The attack according to survivors occurred at about 12: am midnight.

All the travellers were indigenes of Kano and Nasarawa States.

Those who survived the attack had been taken to Bingham Hospital, Jos, for treatment.

While confirming the incident, the spokesman of the State Police Command, ASP Uba Gabriel, said the command was aware of the incident but only two people were confirmed dead.

This incident is coming hours after two miners were attacked and killed at a mining site located around Yelwa Zagam community on Tuesday.
