No fewer than 10 persons were yesterday feared killed in Gaambe-Tiev in Logo Local Council of Benue State by suspected Fulani herdsmen. Several others were reported missing and many others left with injury.

Former Senior Special Assistant to Gabriel Suswam (former governor of Benue State) on Media, Mr. Joseph Anawa, told The Guardian that the attack took place at about 7:30 a.m. in Adayohor village along Uver-Gov Sevav Road.

Anawa said the victims, who were macheted on the stomach and the neck, met their untimely death while on their way to the farm located around Adayohor, adding that the injured persons had been hospitalised at the NKST Hospital in Anyiin.

Reacting to the incident, a member of Benue State House of Assembly representing Logo Constituency, Kester Kyenge, lamented the killing of his people.

He urged the state government to be responsive to the people’s carnage by deploying enough security operatives to halt the killings, noting that the attacks on the community are too many in a short while.

Efforts to get the reaction of the state Police Public Relations Officer, ASP Moses Yamu, failed as at the time of going to press.
