Fifteen people have lost their lives following a fresh wave of attack on several communities in Benue state by herdsmen.

According to reports, scorers were injured and many remain missing following the attack which happened in Tse-Akaa, Mba’abaji and Tse-Orlalu villages in Logo LGA of the state.

A victim of the attack who lost 3 family members, said the herdsmen stormed the villages when most of the victims were returning home from Sunday evening church service.

“The well-armed men, who hid among their cattle, came from Taraba axis, through Abaji, Mbamar, Ugondo and all the way to Akaa village, shooting sporadically at market squares, killing and injuring anything in sight.

“From the market area they moved deep into the villages and the people ran for their lives, but those who were not so lucky were killed. Now there is mass movement of the people fleeing to Ugba, the local government headquarters.

“As we speak, several persons are still missing. We must commend the Police, with other sister security agencies, that swiftly moved into the affected communities since last night and they have been helping the people discover the injured and also recover dead bodies.”

Benue State Commissioner of Police, Mr. Bashir Makama, has confirmed the attack. He however said six corpses had so far been recovered from the affected villages.
