herdsmen

Barely a week after Fulani herdsmen killed 81 people in communities in Benue state, five people have again been killed by suspected herdsmen.

The attack occurred on  Tuesday in Akombo village at around 5:30 pm. A school principal identified as Mr. Sam Wayo as well as four other persons were killed while an unknown number of persons were taken hostage by the attackers.

It is the latest incidence of violence in Benue state in what has become an almost weekly affair. Meanwhile, the Nigerian Police Force has disputed claims that 81 people were killed in Saturday’s attacks and insisted that only 21 people were killed.

The Minister of Agriculture, Audu Ogbeh announced today that the the Government will set up ranches as part of efforts to curb the attacks by herdsmen.

  1. It is a pity that the life of this principal and other just got wasted like. For God’s sake these are human beings not cows. It seems these herds men value the lives of cows above human beings.
