Armed men suspected to be herdsmen have invaded Gungu-Aze community of Nyiev, Guma Local Government Area of Benue State killing no fewer than five adults in the attack.
Currently, two kids who got hurt in the incident are being treated at an unnamed hospital in Makurdi, the state’s capital.
Chief Hon. Mike Adyo, the special adviser to the governor of Benue State on basic education, who confirmed the incident, decried the Fulani militias’ relentless attacks on Nyiev communities in Guma LGA.
He urged the security guards to act right away and maintain control of the situation at all costs. He gave them the responsibility of making sure that the people and property in the state are protected because that is their duty.
