Fulani Herdsmen Invade Benue Community Again , Leaves several People Dead

In yet another sad development, suspected Fulani herdsmen have stormed Benue State to unleash terror on residents.
Up to about 14 persons have been killed after herdsmen attcked a Benue community on Monday.
The rampaging herdsmen carried out the attack on Gaambe-Tiev, Logo Local Government Area of Benue State despite efforts by several parties to halt the unending invasion of Benue communities.
According to Vanguard, the invaders stormed the community at about 7:30a.m., shooting sporadically and razing buildings and farmlands in the area.
According to an eyewitness, the invaders successfully razed several homes, killed and injured most of the victims at Adeyohor village along Uwer-Gov Sevav Road.
He said:-
“The herdsmen, in their usual fashion, stormed Gaambe-Tiev this morning (yesterday), around 7:30a.m. in their numbers, shooting sporadically and shouting. The people never expected it.
“Everybody, including women and children, ran for their lives. Unfortunately, several persons lost their lives and many more were injured. Bodies of some of those killed are being recovered from the farms and we are still counting.”
Reacting, member of the state House of Assembly representing Logo constituency, Dr. Kester Kyenge, who confirmed the latest attack, said the number of the dead could be far more than the 14 being circulated.
He said: “By tomorrow (today), we will have a clearer picture of the number of the dead. I plead with the government to act fast to stop these attacks and killings.”
Contacted, Benue State Police Public Relations Officer, Assistant Superintendent Moses Yamu, said he was yet to be briefed on the matter.
