Armed men suspected to be Fulani herdsmen invaded the Odugbeho community in Agatu Local Government Area of Benue State, killing over 40 residents on Sunday night.
The Senator representing the Benue South Senatorial District, Senator Abah Moro, confirmed the incident in a statement he posted on his official Facebook page.
Abah, who condemned the attack on his constituency, lamented the incessant killings in the area, stating that “enough should be enough”.
“I’m deeply saddened by the attack on Odugbeho community in Agatu LGA on Sunday, which claimed over 40 lives of my constituents. This is highly condemnable and very unacceptable.
“For how long will this carnage continue unabated in Benue South? Enough should be enough,” the statement read.
Numerous attacks have been launched against Benue communities over the past years and there seems to be no solution in sight.
