Five persons including a father and his son have been reportedly killed by suspected Fulani herdsmen, who invaded Tse Udeghe community, Mbakpa Council Ward and Ahumen community in Gwer West Local Government Area of Benue State.

The attack comes less than a week after the marauders attacked and razed the hometown of the traditional ruler of the area, the Ter Nagi, HRH Daniel Abomste, and also sacked several communities in the area.

The gunmen, who stormed the community at about 5:30pm on Thursday in large numbers, also burnt down several houses as most residents took refuge in Naka the headquarters of the local government.

The Gwer West Council Chairman, Mrs Grace Igbabon, who confirmed the development, lamented the sudden influx of herdsmen into the communities from neighbouring Nasarawa State.

She called on security agencies in the state to treat the bloodthirsty men as terrorists and ensure that normalcy returned to the affected areas.
