Six people were killed on Thursday by suspected Fulani herders in a fresh attack in the Guma Local Government Area of Benue State.
The attack, according to a local who simply identified himself as Terna, occurred at Umella village in Mbawa Council Ward of the LGA around 3 pm.
“Some Fulani herders came into Umella community around 3 pm yesterday (Thursday) and attacked the villagers, shot and macheted them.
“Gunshots rented the air when they came which made people run helter-skelter but at the time the attackers left six dead bodies were found,” Terna said.
He gave the names of the deceased to include Aginde Ibember, Orfega Ibember, Alex Msuega, Tsula Iortyer, Verlumun Ortese, and one other whose identity was yet unknown.
