Over 40 residents of Odugbeho, a community in the Agatu Local Government Area of Benue State, are said to have been killed by Fulani herdsmen.
Residents were reported to have been killed and injured by the armed men who invaded the community on Sunday night.
Senator Abah Moro, the Senator representing the Benue South Senatorial District, confirmed the incident on his official Facebook page.
A senator who condemned the attack on his constituency said, “enough should be enough” to end the incessant killings in the area.
The attack on the Odugbeho community in Agatu LGA on Sunday, which killed over 40 members of my constituency, deeply saddens me. It is highly condemnable and unacceptable.
How long will this carnage continue unabated in Benue South? The statement read, “Enough is enough”.
