In a tragic development, a large number of bandits have reportedly attacked Zurak village in Bashar District of Wase local government area of Plateau state, killing more than 40 persons, including vigilantes. 

Reports by Daily Trust on Tuesday, revealed that the incident occurred on Monday evening, when people were going about their normal activities.

The residents who disclosed this said that they could not immediately report the incident to the nearest police station due to the poor communication network in the area.
