About 35 people were killed when some gunmen invaded and attacked Yelwan Zangam community, close to the permanent site of the University of Jos, killing about 35 people.
The killing occurred despite the dusk to dawn curfew imposed in the Jos North as well as Jos South and Bassa local government areas.
The attackers reportedly shot sporadically, gunning down fleeing residents and burning some others within their homes.
Before the incident, the fragile bridge linking the community to other communities was allegedly destroyed to prevent help from coming to the people.
Some state governors have commenced evacuation of their indigenes who are students of the University of Jos over fear of attacks.
