K. Saleh, noted that during the last attack in the Ancha community, Bassa Local Government Area of the state, where 18 persons were killed last week, 16 of the victims were members of the church. Saleh, who condemned the killings, said it was unfortunate that attacks of such magnitude had continued to occur in Bassa communities despite the presence of the 3 Armoured Division of the Nigerian Army, whose headquarters is located in the area. The cleric renewed the call for the redeployment of the General Officer Commanding, 3 Armoured Division, Major General Ibrahim Ali, saying his best was not good for the host communities and the people.
