Fulani herdsmen have allegedly killed eight people in a fresh attack in Logo Local Government Area of Benue state.

This is coming barely few weeks after over 300 people were killed in violent attacks by suspected Fulani herdsmen in Agatu.

An eyewitness who spoke to Vanguard said “it was a coordinated attack on the four villages by the well-armed herdsmen who stormed our villages in large numbers. It was the sound of their gunshots that woke everyone from sleep, resulting in a stampede and the gunning down of about eight persons.”

The source also said  “The causality figures may be more than that, because many people are still unaccounted for just as scores sustained serious injuries.

“As I speak with you, the affected villages have been deserted and the invaders have taken over and they are razing the ancestral homes of the people who fled to Anyii, Ugba and Abeda towns, in their thousands.”

The spokesman of the Benue state police command, Assistant Superintendent Moses Yamu, has however denied knowledge of any attack.

The Fulani herdsmen have been accused of several violent attacks and killings in states like Adamawa, Enugu, Delta, Oyo to mention a few.

You will recall also, that the chairman of the Social Democratic Party (SDP), Olu Falae, was kidnapped by suspected Fulani herdsmen.
