Eight persons were feared dead following an attack by suspected herdsmen, on two villages in Logo Local Government Area of Benue state, a Police statement said. The Spokesman of the Police Command in Benue, ASP Moses Yamu, confirmed the attacks in a statement on Monday in Makurdi. Yamu said the attacks on Akaa and Tse-Orlalu villages in Mbamar, Ugondo communities, were perpetrated by suspected herdsmen late on Sunday.
 He said that the police had yet to establish the motive for the attack and that adequate personnel had been drafted to the villages to restore normalcy. He said the attackers invaded the villages, killed eight people and injured many others.
 Meanwhile, an eyewitness told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Monday that the herdsmen came in from Taraba State through Abaji and Mbamar in Ugondo community,
“They started first by attacking Akaa village before advancing to neighbouring Orlalu.’’ The eyewitness, who spoke on condition of anonymity, said that several villagers were still missing.
 The suspected herdsmen had attacked some communities in the past, including Agatu community, where 10 persons were killed. The activities of herdsmen in Benue state has been consistent as villages after villages have been sacked. In March, suspected herdsmen also killed inmates in Makurdi prison farms. Meanwhile, efforts by security agencies and the state government are still ongoing to curtail the restive herdsmen and protect communities.
