An attack by herdsmen on residents of Gabo
village in Nengev and Turan Councils wards of
Logo Local Government Area of Benue State on
Friday June 17th, has left six persons dead with
several others injured.
The herdsmen stormed the village in the night,
attacking the community members with
machetes and other dangerous weapons. A
member of the House of Representatives that
represents Logo State Constituency, Hon. Terna-­
Kester Kyenge, told the Sun that he received six
mutilated corpses
“I received six mutilated corpses and
addressed hundreds of displaced persons
including women and children. I condemn
the attack as gruesome and barbaric. I,
however, call for restraint on the part of
my people while I urge the federal and
state governments to intervene in
arresting the culprits and provide relief
materials to the displaced people.”
Confirming the incident, the state Police
Public Relations Officer (PPRO), ASP
Moses Yamu, said the corpses of the
deceased victims had been deposited at
the morgue of the General Hospital,
Ugbah. “You know, these Fulanis always
strike in a guerrilla manner. Once they
strike, they leave the area. Security has
been beefed up in the area and the
people can now return to their homes,”
Yamu said
