Angry protesting women have burnt down the residence of the District Head of Bokkos Local Government Area of Plateau State, Micheal Monday Adanchi.
It was gathered that the traditional ruler’s house was razed around 12:30pm on Friday, January 5, 2024.
The women set fire to the house in response to the arrest of some community members suspected of involvement in recent silent killings in the area.
A source told newsmen that the women burned down both the entire residence of the traditional ruler and his administrative office.
“Trouble started at the police station where they expressed their anger over the arrest of some members of the community. After leaving the police station, they proceeded straight to the house of the traditional ruler, whom they allegedly accused of betraying them. A few minutes after reaching the house, they set it ablaze,” the source stated
It was further gathered that soldiers had arrived in the area and dispersed the protesting women.
