Benue Killing: Police Arrest 8 Herdsmen, Deploys Men To Forestall Occurrence by BeeBeeOoh(m): 3:37pm On Jan 03
The Police in Benue say they have arrested eight herdsmen over the death of 10 persons and seven livestock guards in Guma and Logo Local Governments of the state on Monday.

The Police Public Relations Officer in the state, Moses Yamu, announced this in a statement made available to the News Agency of Nigeria on Wednesday in Makurdi.

“Eight herdsmen, six in Guma and two in Logo, had been arrested in connection with the attacks,” the police spokesman said.

He added that the command had made additional deployments to the troubled area to forestall further occurrence and restore confidence of the people.

Mr. Yamu stressed the situation in the two local government areas had been brought under control while investigation was ongoing.

He said: “They attacked Tomater village in Sengev Council ward, Akor village in Nzorov council ward and Bakin Kwata village in Umanger council ward of Guma LGA.

“Among those killed were seven (7) members of Benue State Livestock Guards, their vehicle burnt and an uncertain number of persons injured in separate attacks between 31/12/2017 and 02/01/2018.

“Again, Agba-Uko near Azege village and Tse-Aga village of Logo LGA experienced the same fate, where one person was killed, one motorcycle burnt and four persons injured.

“All the injured from both LGAs are currently undergoing treatment in various hospitals in the State.”

According to him, five combined teams of mobile and conventional policemen led by Assistant Commissioner of Police, Operations, Emmanuel Adesina, have engaged the armed herdsmen in a gun duel in Guma.

The Benue governor said on Tuesday that 20 people were killed in the attacks.

The News Agency of Nigeria reports that the Benue Anti-Open Grazing Law came into effect on November 1, 2017 to forestall attacks on Benue communities by suspected herders.

The law stipulates five year jail term or an option of N1 million fine for violators.

The attack is the first by suspected herdsmen since the law came into effect.

But if it is true, it is not an arrest. Simply an opportunity to meet their senior colleague in power. They will release them with new ammunitions

i hope this is true


one thing is to make arrest, another thing is to prosecute...i just hope they won't be taken to cell and released when 'awa oga at the top' calls.

one thing i can't decipher is the motive behind all these killings,is it that these herdsmen are drunk with power because their kinsman is ruling

God save us all

good let me specify their punishments.
1. no court. they don't have the right to fair hearing so long they're foolanis and they were armed.
2. start by applying acid judiciously all over their dickz
3. make sure their hands are tied behind their backs
4. leave the acid to work for 24 hrs.
5. get all their wives and children
6. slaughter them before their very eyes.
7. cut off their right arms
8. cut of their left legs.
9. cut off their right ears
10. burst their balls
11. finish them off by firing squad.

Eye service as usual! Don't ever allow yourself to be deceived by this publicity show. They will soon release them at night. If kabiru sokoto, a violent terrorist responsible for deaths of many people was released, what is fulani herds men? The fact that zoo police even claimed to arrest fulani herds men after so many lives were massacred in cold blood shows that Nigerian security agencies including the police are in the hands of terrorist and murderers. What have they been doing all this while? Same police that is yet to arrest those involved in massacres of people across the country all of a sudden began making arrest? They will release them, and nothing will happen.
Christians better rise up and defend themselves, zoo security agencies are islamic and anti christian. Is it any surprise that no killer fulani herdsman has been prosecuted and sentensed to death for murder since they began their genocidal campaign? All security apparatus in the country has been northernized.

Welcome to change!

what is this one saying?

From the story above, i still don’t believe they police have made any arrest. Buhari’s kinsmen are untouchable.
