Over 20 killed as herdsmen launch fresh attack on Guma in Benue

No fewer than 20 persons have been killed and several persons declared missing after herdsmen attacked Tse Agudu in Mbawa Council Ward, Guma LGA Area of Benue State.

The armed men invaded the village at about 8am on Tuesday, setting over 67 houses on fire.

A bush meat vendor in the village told DAILY POST on phone that the entire village is now empty as residents have deserted their homes for the intruders, who are feasting on their farm produce with their cattle.

Just yesterday, over 53 persons were killed in separate attacks in Gwer East and Guma LGAs of the state.

The development forced the state governor, Samuel Ortom to cut short his 12-day vacation.
