Suspected Fulani herdsmen are said to have killed at least 100 people between Saturday and Monday in Plateau and Taraba states.  “Seventy of the deaths were recorded in Karim Lamido and Takum local government areas of Taraba State and 30 in two villages at the Barkin Ladi LGA  of Plateau State.” Among those called were a pastor named Luka Gwom of the Church of Christ in Nation, three soldiers, and a newlywed woman. The herdsmen reportedly went on the killing spree because 400 of their cows were stolen. However, 300 of the cows were found afterwards.
