MAKURDI – Three persons were
reportedly killed in a fresh outbreak of
bloody conflict between suspected Fulani
herdsmen and native Tiv farmers at
Yogbo village in Guma local government
area of Benu state.
This latest fighting in Yogbo is coming a
year after a similar crisis in the same
community between the farmers and
herdsmen left over 45 persons dead.
Vanguard gathered from an eyewitness
Tuesday that crisis broke out in Yogbo
three days ago when some herdsmen
stormed the village at night shooting
sporadically and burning down houses,
huts and farmland in the community.
According to the witness, “this latest
attack on Yogbo community was
unprovoked and no one expected the
attack since there was no form of
incitement of any kind on both sides.
“They, the Fulanis, stormed Yogbo with
sophisticated weapons, at about 10pm,
when the people had gone to bed,
shooting and burning down huts,
houses and farmland.
“Most of us managed to flee to safety
while the unlucky ones were slaughtered
in cold blood, among those killed were
two women and a man.
“At the moment most of the victims of
the attack who fled their homes for fear
of being killed, are currently moving with
their families towards Makurdi town for
safety.”
When contacted, the Chairman of Guma
local government council, Mr. Frank Adi
disclosed that among those killed in the
latest fighting in Yogbo were two
women and a man.
He said, “this latest bloodbath is rather
unfortunate; just when we were yet to
come of of the shock of the killing at Uvir
community during a fishing festival at
Ake Lake, we are yet confronted with
another destruction and unfortunate
killing of Tiv farmers in Yogbo”.
The chairman said he had already
informed the authorities security
agencies in the state on the latest killing
for necessary action to stem the ugly
development.
When contacted, the Benue State Police
Public Relations Officer, PPRO, Deputy
Suprintendent of Police, DSP, Daniel
Ezeala said he had not been briefed on
the issue adding that nobody had
informed the Police of any killings in
Yogbo.
