ARMED HERDSMEN KILL 46 IN BENUE
Several persons have been killed in a deadly attack launched on the Umogidi community of Entekpa Adoka district in Otukpo Local Government Area of Benue State by suspected killer herdsmen.
The ugly incident which occurred on Wednesday led to the death of 46 persons, including a son of the Otukpo Local Government Chairman, Hon. Bako Eje.
Lt Col. Paul Hemba (retd.), Special Adviser to Governor Samuel Ortom on Security confirmed the development.
He said, though the 46 corpses have been recovered, casualty figures may likely rise due to life-threatening injuries sustained by scores of residents during the attack.
He said, “I can confirm to you that there was an attack in Umogidi and as of this morning, the casualty figure, from those who were seen physically from what I was told, was 46. But the figure may be higher because some people are still reported missing.”
The fresh attack came a day after the daredevil terrorists invaded the community and killed three persons on Tuesday.
Prior to that incident, the assailants also attacked the Igbobi community in the neighbouring Apa Local Government Area of the state on Monday.
