JOS: At least 20 people were killed and dozens of others were njured on Monday following a clash between Christians and Muslims in Nigeria’s central Plateau State, a witness said.

The state assistant commissioner of police, Sotonye Wakama, confirmed that four people were killed but said that the figure could be higher. He said that he has yet to get the full details of the violence in Bakin Chiyawa town. Inuwa Mohammed, a resident in the town, told journalists that he saw at least 20 dead bodies. “More than 20 people were killed. Corpses littered the area,” he said. Many houses were burnt and property worth millions of naira were destroyed in the unrest, which forced many residents to flee to neighbouring Nassarawa State, said Mohammed. Wase, a largely Muslim community in the state, has in recent years been locked in conflict with the Christian villagers of nearby Tarok and Langtang. Some 20 people were killed last month in violence in the area. —AFP
