Breaking: 30 houses razed as another Benue community comes under heavy attack

Several persons have been reportedly killed, others declared missing while over 30 houses were razed after suspected herdsmen attacked Anyiin, Mbagber Council Ward in Logo Local Government Area of Benue State.

DAILY POST gathered that some heavily armed men invaded the community late last night.

The development forced many residents, who were already fast asleep to abandon their homes for fear of being killed by the attackers.

A source hinted our Daily post  that security operatives on ground, especially mobile police force swung into action and chased away the intruders after they had killed many residents.

A resident of the area, who spoke with DAILY POST on Friday, said over 25 persons were killed in the attack.

“As we speak, over 25 persons have been killed while many are still missing. We are homeless at the moment. The government should come to our rescue,” the resident pleaded.

May God protect us all, this is becoming too much.
