Suspected herdsmen murder eight victims during attack on Benue community


Tragedy struck in the Tse Ancha in the Agan community of Makurdi Local Government Area of Benue State when suspected Fulani herdsmen attacked and killed no fewer than eight people during an attack.

The incident was confirmed by the Chairman of Makurdi LGA, Anthony Dyegeh in an interview with PUNCH where he revealed that the casualty would have been more but for the prompt response of some youths who were at a wake in a nearby village and mobilized themselves and raced to the community.

He said, “The quick intervention of the youths of the community who mobilized and repelled the attackers saved the communities from being wiped out because they came in their numbers and were obviously out to kill more people, sack the community, and march into neighboring villages.
