Several people have been killed in a fresh attack by suspected herdsmen on Olosu, a village in Okpokwu Local Government Area of Benue State.

The Chairman of the LGA, Mr Ogwuche Olofu, told our correspondent that 17 people were killed in the attack.

The herdsmen are said to have attacked the community on Monday after accusing youths in the village of attacking them.

According to Mr Olofu, the attack took place about 30 minutes after he left the village next to where the camp of the herdsmen that were reportedly attacked.

Apart from those that were killed, the LG chairman said many people were still missing.

The police have, however, yet to confirm the number of people killed in the attack.
