|Herdsmen Kill 20 In Fresh Benue Attack by Concisenews: 10:43am On Jan 03|
Suspected Fulani herdsmen has reportedly killed at least 20 people in early Wednesday morning attacks on two Local Government Areas of Benue State.
According to reports, the people died in six villages of the affected local government areas of Logo and Guma in the wake of the invasion by suspected herdsmen on Monday and Tuesday.
It was learned that the affected villages included Gambe-Tiev, Turan and Ayilamo of Logo LGA and Akor, Tom-atar and Umenger in Guma LGA respectively.
Speaking, Benue State Police PRO, Moses Yamu, confirmed the attack but could not ascertain number of the dead at the time of sending this report.
Governor Samuel Ortom who spoke to newsmen shortly after an emergency state security meeting in Makurdi, said that over 20 people had been killed according to the reports available to him.
Ortom who proceeded to the Benue State University Teaching Hospital (BSUTH) in Makurdi to see the wounded lamented that more dead bodies were being brought into the morgue from the troubled communities.
He said; “What we have just seen today is just the tip of the iceberg. What happened in the villages was far beyond the report we earlier received that more than 20 people have been killed and amongst them nine of the livestock guards who were there to ensure that there are no clashes.
“Even innocent women and children were killed. This is not fair. This is not acceptable. We are not going to accept it. There is no going back on the implementation of the grazing law. This is our land and the law was duly passed by our people,” Ortom said.
At the BSUTH, a medical practitioner of Department of Surgery, Dr. Gajir Tsoho, confirmed that 30 injured people were brought into the hospital facility.
