Seven people killed in suspected Fulani attack
At least seven civilians were killed, and many others seriously injured earlier this week when suspected Fulani Herdsmen attacked the Abagena community housing IDP camp in Benue State.
David Avese, a father of seven, and a victim of the attack receiving medical treatment in a hospital told Naija news that one of his children was killed and three others shot during the assault.
“The herdsmen surrounded our village around 12 am; they were about 10 in number, and they shot and entered people’s houses,” Avese told Naija News,
“They killed one of my children and shot three others. I have not seen my wife.”
Another victim, Gwabo Matthew told Naija News that, “They (the herdsmen) operated for over two hours. The attackers were Fulani because they were speaking in Fulfulde language.”
