Two people have been killed by gunmen in the Nyiev community of Guma Local Government Area of Benue State.
Earlier in the week, nine people were killed in different parts of the local government area.
Guma’s Council Chairman, Caleb Aba, told our correspondent on Thursday that the gunmen besieged Nyiev and opened fire on its residents.
He told me the gunmen were militia who had also trespassed on villagers’ farms on Wednesday.
He said the matter had been reported to security agencies who are taking all the necessary steps to prevent further invasions.
Upon being contacted, Police Spokesperson for Benue Command, DSP Catherine Anene, said she was not aware of the matter.
