Enough is Enough! Bloody Protest Rocks Benue as Suspected Fulani Herdsmen Kill Farmer

Angry residents of Benue State have poured out into the streets with fury to protest endless killings of indigenes by Fulani herdsmen.

Gunmen suspected to be Fulani herdsmen allegedly killed a Tiv man on his farm, Thursday afternoon in Benue State. The sad incident has triggered serious protest as angry youths came out in their numbers and blocked the ever-busy Otukpo – Makurdi expressway.

Daily Post reports that motorists plying the road are currently held to a stand still as no one is allowed to pass through the community.

According to an eyewitness, Peters Ozofor, “Some Fulani herdsmen killed a Tiv man on his farm few minutes ago and since then, the Tivs have blocked the road therefore no car can go through the express way.

“So far, an innocent passenger has been killed and a driver injured. Every other car including ours is packed on the highway.”

Confirming the attack on Thursday evening, the Benue State Police PRO, Moses Yamu, ASP, said the incident occurred in Tse Igba Uke village after suspected herdsmen killed one of the villagers over alleged attack on their cattle.

He said, “We got reports today that suspected herdsmen attacked Tse Igba Uke village, killed one Sunday Kachuwa and injured Zongu Aliade over alleged attack on their cattle. The corpse was removed to General hospital while the injured is under going treatment.

“In another development, youths at Ikpayongo blocked the road in protest of the killing and killed a passenger in the process. Policemen led by the CP cleared the road and restored normalcy to the area.

“The command frowns at jungle justice and appeals to the general public to desist from taking laws into their hands.”
