Reality TV star Diane Russet has passionately spoken out against the recent attack on communities in three local government areas of Plateau state.

On Christmas Eve, gunmen stormed several communities (Ndun, Ngyong, Murfet, Makundary, Tamiso, Chiang, Tahore, Gawarba, Dares, Meyenga, Darwat, and Butura Kampani villages in the Barkin Ladi, Mangu, and Bokkos areas of the state), burning houses and shooting residents.

It was gathered that over 115 persons, including women and children, were sadly killed in the attack, while over 10,000 were displaced and are currently taking refuge in churches, mosques, schools, and private residences.

In reaction to the tragedy, President Tinubu assured Nigerians that ‘these envoys of death, pain, and sorrow will not escape justice.’

Speaking on the attack, Diane also took to social media to offer condolences to the affected parties and expressed outrage that the incident is not receiving enough press coverage in Nigeria.

The 28-year-old actress and movie producer wrote,

“It’s devastating that over 100 people were killed in Plateau state Jos). We’re silent about it, yet quick to react to killings in other countries. The North is part of Nigeria, and Northern Christians are human beings. No one deserves to be killed. I wish religion and tribalism could be erased from Nigeria so we could see each other as humans first. I hope the lives lost get justice. This is not the Nigeria I hoped for. When you can make a difference, I hope you do. True leaders serve!

You can choose what to speak about, but I hope you’ll stand against oppression and killings. We need to speak up and make our voices heard.”
