A father and his son have been reportedly killed in an attack by gunmen on Durbi village of Shere District in Jos East Local Government Area of Plateau State.

The attack according to sources occurred Saturday night, leading to the death of the two persons.

Osun Defender gathered that the villagers came out to repel the attack with one of attackers also said to have lost his life.

A source said the corpses were being held by the villagers, including that of the attacker.

The incident was coming a few days after a series of attacks on communities in Bokkos and Barkin Ladi local government areas of the state claimed about 150 lives and left many others injured.

However, the spokesperson of Operation Safe Haven, a multi-security taskforce maintaining peace in the state, Captain James Oya, while reacting to the latest attack, said the incident was a case of attempted kidnap of one Luka Kaze whose son was killed in the process.

Oya said when troops started coming for rescue operation, the abductors mistakenly shot one of their colleagues, adding that the gunman shot Kaze dead out of anger.
