Suspected Fulani herdsmen on Monday invaded some settlements in Tombo ward, Logo Local Government Area in Benue State, according to reports from the area.

One of the reports, by THISDAY, said that the herdsmen, “who arrived the communities in SUV, came with their cattle which grazed freely on farmlands.”

The paper quoted the leader of the community, Chief Job Tiza, as disclosing that the herdsmen destroyed farm crops and razed houses in the affected communities.

“Tiza said farmers in the area have deserted their homes and are now taking refuge in Ayilamo, a community in the same local government area,” the report said.
