2 Farmers Killed By Terrorists In Fresh Benue State Attack

The violence across the country continues as two farmers have been killed in a fresh attack by terrorists at Ikyungwa Tombo Ward, near Ayilamo community in Logo Local Government area of Benue State, Northcentral Nigeria.

Sources confirmed that the incident happened on Monday at 5 pm while the duo, Bem Uhembe and Mungwa Zuzu, all from Tse Ibor village, were returning to Ayilamo town after they had worked on their farms.

Before then, their settlement had been allegedly taken over by suspected Fulani herders.

Locals further said that the bodies of the deceased had been deposited at an Ayilamo mortuary.

Chairman of the Local Government Area, Agber Terse, confirmed to our correspondent on the telephone that the deceased persons – a lady and a man – were accosted and killed after leaving their farms on Monday evening.

Agber blamed militant herders for the killing of the duo occasioned by the consistent invasion of Tombo ward, a farming settlement, which had been under sustained attacks by gunmen suspected to be herders since 2016.

Contacted, the Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO) SP, Catherine Anene, however, said she hadn’t received the report.
