Herdsmen Killings: 4 Benue farmers murdered in fresh attack

Some suspected herdsmen have reportedly killed four farmers in a fresh attack on Tse- Dzungwe, Logo Local Government area of Benue State.

The victims have been identified as Terlumun Uke, Samuel Dwem, Draba Dwem, and Apaaga Mlanga.

Tyovenda Gbumsy, the spokesman for the community, told newsmen that herdsmen moved into the area with hundreds of cattle which destroyed crops.

Tyovenda, who fled to a neighbouring community, continued: “the invasion was reported to soldiers drafted to the state and they chased the herdsmen away.

“Soon afterward, the herdsmen regrouped and launched an attack on our community,” he stated.
