BREAKING: Benue bleeds as gunmen kill 20 in Zaki Biam (GRAPHIC PHOTOS)

Written By Idoma Television on Monday, March 20, 2017 | 2:14:00 PM

No fewer than 20 persons were killed in Zaki Biam, Ukum local government area of Benue State on Monday.

Zaki Biam shares boundary with Wukari local government area of Taraba.
A community leader, Chief Udam Wuhe, said more than 10 gunmen stormed the town from TorTonda- Zaki Biam road at about 5:00 p.m. on Monday.

According to him, the people counted not fewer than 20 dead bodies.

Wuhe could not ascertain if the attackers were Fulani Herdsmen.

The incident is coming barely one week after suspected Fulani Herdsmen killed over 10 person in Buruku area of the state, which led to the governor, Samuel Ortom issuing them 72 hours ultimatum to vacate the area.

The state Police Public Relation Officer, Moses Yamu, who confirmed the killing, however, said the casualty figure has not been ascertained.

“We are yet to ascertain the number of those killed in the attack. Our men are already on ground there to restore normalcy to the area,” he said.
