Benue villagers kill three herdsmen, cattle



The police in Benue State have confirmed the killing of three Fulani herdsmen and their cattle by some villagers in the Agatu area of the state.

Our correspondent learnt that the villagers on Sunday killed the herdsmen and their cattle for allegedly trespassing into some farmlands.



It was gathered that the police operatives had recovered the corpses of two of the herdsmen, while a search was still on for the third corpse.

It will be recalled that the herdsmen also on Sunday and Tuesday, in what has been described as reprisals, attacked some villages in the Logo Local Government Area of the state, killing 15 persons.

The police later noted that eight herdsmen were arrested for the killings.

The Benue State Commissioner of Police, Bashir Makama, confirmed the killing of the three herdsmen and their cattle to our correspondent, adding that the police were working to ensure peace and order among the warring farmers and herdsmen in the state.

Makama said, “In Agatu, the villagers killed three Fulani herdsmen on Sunday and also killed their cows. Two corpses have been found and we are still searching for the third corpse.

“This is part of the things that incite violence. Both the villagers and the herdsmen need to be taught that as the farmers value their farmlands, the herdsmen value their cows.

“If these incidents happen, it means the proactive actions by the police have not fully been implemented or something has gone wrong. Also, this is not the first time of such attacks.


“We are only referring to the most recent attacks. We  have this bad situation in the past, but the magnitude is lower now because of some of the proactive steps taken by the police.”

The Niger Delta As A Microcosm Of Nigeria | Eugene Abels | TEDxPortHarcourt

Despite being abundant in human and natural resources, violence and decline in development prevail in the Niger Delta region of Nigeria. In this talk, Eugene Abels invites us to stop pointing fingers at governments, unite and reflect on our history and also, to change our thought patterns, attitudes and habits in order to create the community/nation we want.

A deliberate Change Agent and technocrat committed to international best practices who has in three decades traversed the Real, Banking and Public Sectors of the Nigerian Economy, Eugene Irefa Abels was born, bred and schooled in Port Harcourt, Rivers State, Nigeria. He hails from two oil producing Communities, Nembe and Finima and believes that they are a microcosm of the Niger Delta Region.

An exponent of the need to exorcise our Colonial past from the souls of our public servants and elected officials, he believes the art of governance has been reduced to the single person pronoun ‘I’ whereas ‘we the people’ holds no relevance.
