President Muhammadu Buhari has condemned the “extreme violence” and killings of scores of people in Benue State within one week.
Buhari in a statement issued by his media aide, Garba Shehu, on Saturday, April 8, 2023, condemned the “use of terrorism as a tool in inter-communal conflicts” and directed the attackers “be found and dealt with” swiftly under the law.
The incident was barely 24 hours after the same village, an Idoma-speaking community suffered an attack by suspected herdsmen with three persons killed.
No fewer than 46 people were slain by suspected herdsmen who invaded Umogidi village of Entekpa-Adoka district in Benue State.
The suspected herdsmen on Friday also attacked Internal Displaced Persons (IDP) camps at Agan in the Makurdi Local Government Area of Benue with many killed.
