Some armed herders on Wednesday killed six people at two communities in Logo Local Government Area of Benue Sate, barely one week after the inauguration of the state security outfit known as Volunteer Community Guards in the state.

The incident, according to locals, happened at Tse Ngojov and Tse Valem Yaweh in Mbagum communities, Tombo council  ward  in Logo Local Government Area of the state.

It was gathered that the suspected herders invaded the communities around 9pm on Wednesday, shot sporadically, killing six people and injuring  three others.

The source identified the deceased as Ander John, Vihior Mtomga, Morgan Varem, Saaior Uyoosu, Aondoyima Tarbo and Peter Asondo.

The injured ones were identified as Terngu Tyavkase Usue, Igbaule Valem and Chiater Tarbo (a. k. a Ajimmy)

One of the locals who simply identified himself as Terhemen said, “On August 10, 2022, at about 9:00pm, armed Fulani herdsmen attacked Tse Ngojov and Tse Valem Yaweh in Mbagum community Tombo council  ward, Logo LGA and murdered the following persons

“The injured persons are receiving treatment at the Primary Health Care Ayilamo”.

The Security Adviser to the governor, Lt Col Paul Hemba (retd.), confirmed the killing.

“It is true, the council chairman briefed me which I have relayed to the  governor and the governor has directed that the deceased  be buried while the injured ones be  evacuated to the University Teaching hospital, Makurdi”, he said.

However, the Commissioner of Police, Wale Abass, confirmed the incident but said he had yet to get details.
