At least five people have died in Taraba State after Fulani herdsmen launched an attack on Ananum village in the Donga Local Government Area of the state.

The herdsmen were also said to have left many people injured during the invasion which occurred on Monday, March 23.

The attackers, numbering about 200, were said to have been brandishing guns with which they inflicted bullet wounds on many residents.

An eyewitness, Ages Tarza said that the Fulani herdsmen had been attacking Tiv villages in the area for a while.

“Instead of providing security, security personnel have been arresting and detaining our people, who are innocent and have not attacked a single Fulani man,” Tarza told Vanguard.

“The herdsmen attacked two of our villages, Ananum and Wahanye, and reduced them to rubble,” he added.

The incident has been confirmed by the Police Public Relations Officer for the state, Joseph Kwaji.

Kwaji stated that investigations into the attack were already underway.

This is the "CHANGE" that Bokohari oops i mean Buhari is promising if you make him president. He has never cautioned his Fulani townsmen that go round the whole country every single day butchering innocent citizens and your so- called agent of "change" Buhari never says a word!
I pity you people if that jihadist man wins this election
