SUSPECTED HERDSMEN KILLED ONE INJURED OTHERS -FROM BENUE



From Makurdi we got a report that a 25-year old farmer was killed by a suspected group of herdsmen when they invaded Makurdi. The victim whose name was John Chinter, was reportedly killed by suspected armed herdsmen that  invaded Tse Igba community in Mbabai council ward of Benue state, yesterday morning.

The deceased who was a member of IFAD-VCDP supported farmers’ cooperative society in the community was murdered when the armed herdsmen stormed the community at about 1am and started shootings sporadically.

A member of the cooperative, who spoke on condition of anonymity said "they  stormed the home of the young man and his family members at about 1 am ,while they were sleeping and opened fire on them.

You know that because of the hot weather, people now sleep outside their houses. So when they stormed the compound they opened fire on the people, who they met sleeping outside, killing the young man and injuring others who tried to flee.

They are presently receiving treatment at the Benue State University Teaching Hospital, BSUTH, in Makurdi.

This is unfortunate because he was somebody I knew very well, a member of our cooperative society who was peaceful and hardworking, it is painful.

When contacted, the Police Public Relations Officer, Deputy Superintendent, DSP, Catherine Anene said she was yet to receive details of the incident."
