Fresh Fulani Attack Claims 50 Lives in #Benue

Fulani insurgents wielding sophisticated weapons have again killed about 50 persons in another fresh attack on villages in Logo Local Government Area (LGA) of Benue State.

The attack which took place on Sunday claimed the lives of men, women, children and the aged in the three villages of Iorza, Per and Faga in Logo LG which is the LGA of the state governor, Gabriel Suswam.

A resident noted that the attacks which took place in Suswam's council were without provocation.

Daily Independent gathered that the invaders stormed the village as early as 5:30 a.m. when some of the women had gone to the stream to get water in readiness for Sunday Church service.

Some of the victims were receiving treatments at different locations in some undisclosed hospitals in the LG council.

The Police Public Relations Officer for the Command in the state, Austin Ezeani, confirmed the attacks even as he noted that security has been beefed up in the area.
