Herdsmen kill eleven in Benue in another fresh attack

Eleven people have been killed in Makurdi, the Benue State government said today, a day after at least 18 people died in an attack on a church that caused widespread outrage.

Rilwanu Adamu, an adviser to the Benue governor Samuel Ortom on Islamic affairs, said the attack happened in the state capital, Makurdi, and targeted ethnic Hausa traders.

“We lost 11 of our people…. We have five people also hospitalised in Makurdi,” he said, warning that the death toll could yet rise.
