Suspected Herdsmen Kill 16 In Benue

The Chairman Sanga Local Government Council, Kaduna State, Charles Danladi, has confirmed the death of 10 persons in an attack on Nandu village in the area.

Naija News had reported that about ten bodies have been recovered and thirty houses found burnt after Gunmen unleashed fresh attack in a Community in Sanga LGA of Kaduna State.

The chairman told NAN in Kafanchan on Saturday that the attack occurred on Friday and 11 houses were burnt.

Danladi, however, said that normalcy had since returned to the affected village, as the local council intensifies efforts at dousing tension to prevent reprisal.

He said youths of the area had been summoned and counselled against embarking on any acts capable of escalating the ugly situation.

A resident of the affected village, who pleaded anonymity told NAN that the attack was suspected to have been launched by Fulani herders in retaliation for an attack on them by locals before the general election.

He said, at least 11 cows and 28 sheep were killed during that attack.

Efforts to get police reaction was unsuccessful as the Spokesman of Kaduna State Police Command, DSP Yakubu Sabo did not respond to calls on his handset.
