Suspected herdsmen kill 10 in Benue

Suspected herdsmen have killed 10 people in  Tser Uoreleegeb in Ubabai council ward of Guma Local Government Area of Benue State yesterday Wednesday March 20th.
According to reports, the herdsmen stormed the community at night.
“The  people were sleeping in front of  their house when the gunmen arrived. They shot at them  and immediately ran away. So,  no one can say who killed them.”
Chairman of  Guma LGA, Richard Shaor,  strongly believes the attack was carried out by herdsmen.
“On Monday someone was  killed by herdsmen before the incident at Tser Uoreleegeb.  The same herdsmen  went to this community on Tuesday night and killed 10  people who were sleeping outside. Their remains have been buried  because the villagers insisted  that the corpses  should be brought to the village for burial.” he said
Also confirming the attack, the spokesperson of the state police command, Catherine Anene,  said, “The Divisional Police Officer in Guma  has  confirmed the incident. He said he saw five corpses at  the burial ground.”
