Suspected Herdsmen Kill 40 In Odugbeho, Benue State

Armed men suspected to be Fulani herdsmen have again launched a deadly attack in Odugbeho community in Agatu Local Government Area of Benue State, killing over 40 residents.

DAILY POST gathered that the armed men invaded the community on Sunday night, killing residents and injuring scores.

When contacted by DAILY POST correspondent, the state’s Police Public Relations Officer, DSP Anene Sewuese Catharine, simply said, “I am yet to receive that report”.

However, the Senator representing the Benue South Senatorial District, Senator Abba Moro, confirmed the incident in a statement he posted on his official Facebook page.

The senator, who condemned the attack on his constituency, lamented the incessant killings in the area stating that “enough should be enough”.

“I’m deeply saddened by the attack on Odugbeho community in Agatu LGA on Sunday, which claimed over 40 lives of my constituents. This is highly condemnable and very unacceptable.

“For how long will this carnage continue unabated in Benue South? Enough should be enough”, the statement read.
