Benue Under Attack Again!

At least eight persons have been reportedly killed in a fresh attack on Benue communities by suspected Fulani herdsmen who Tuesday invaded parts of Logo local government area of state.

The attack is coming on the heels of the Agatu massacre where over 300 person were killed in over one week of sustained offensive on Agatu communities by suspected Fulani mercenaries.

Exclusive information available to thestreetreporters.com  relates that in this latest attack,the marauders invaded four villages including Tse Chia, Tse Nhumbe, Deghkia and Ngorukgan at about 2am, shooting sporadically and burning down houses and huts in the affected communities.

According to the source, “it was a coordinated attack on the four villages by the well armed herdsmen who stormed our villages in large number, around 2am and shooting sporadically.

“It was the sound of their gunshot that woke everyone from sleep resulting in a stampede and the gunning down and macheting of about 8 persons though the causality figure maybe more than that because many person are still unaccounted for just as scores sustained serious injuries.

“As I speak with you the affected villages have been deserted and the invaders have taken over and are razing in the ancestral homes of the people who have fled to Anyii, Ugba and Abeda towns, in their thousands, for fear of being killed.

“It’s a pathetic situation, the development has inflicted untold hardship on women, children and the elderly who are trekking long distances in search of safe haven and awaiting the intervention of security operatives.

IGP Solomon Arase” When contacted, the Benue state Police spokesman, Assistant Superintendent, ASP, Moses Yamu said he was yet to receive details of the development.
