Six persons have been allegedly killed by some suspected

Fulani herdsmen who attacked some villages in Agatu Local

Government Area of Benue State on Thursday.

An eyewitness who made a distress call to our correspondent

around 12 midnight yesterday said the attackers started

attempting to invade the communities since 2pm but met with

stiff resistance.

Our source stated further that many persons were injured

during the attack adding that villagers had deserted Okoklo,

Ologba and other neighbouring villages following the attack.

Member representing Agatu State Constituency, Alhaji Sule

Audu who lamented the incessant attacks on his people by

suspected Fulani herdsmen called on the state and federal

government to quickly wade into the matter with a view to

finding a lasting solution to the problem.

When contacted, state Police Public Relations Officer

(PPRO), ASP Moses Yamu disclosed that the state Police

Command had already sent operatives to the area to ascertain

the true situation of things so as not to just act on rumor.

“Yes, we heard something like that and we have sent some

operatives to the area to see what is really happening because

we don’t just want to be actin on the basis of rumor. I cannot

say anything further until they come back.”

Our correspondent observed that incidence of Herders/

farmers clashes is becoming rampant in the state, a

development that is becoming worrisome even to the state

government.

Recall that just early this week, the State Governor, Samuel

Ortom at a security meeting held at the Government House

directed security agencies to arrest those who are behind

herders/ farmers clashes in the state.
