20 Herdsmen, 83 Cows Killed In Nasarawa In Suspected Reprisal Attacks

Not less than 20 herdsmen and 83 cows were reportedly killed in Adayi and Loko areas of Nasarawa LGA of Nasarawa State by gunmen suspected to have come from Benue and Nasarawa states, over the weekend.

The state police spokesman, ASP Ismaila Numa, who confirmed the attack, said he could not verify the identity of the attackers, adding that the police only received the report and have commenced investigation.

The Fulani leader of Adayi area, Mallam Bideri Ahmadu, said the killing of the cows was carried out by people suspected to be Agatu gunmen.

The traditional ruler of Loko, Alhaji Abubakar Ahmed Sabo, also blamed Agatu youths in the killing of 20 men in the attack.

According to him, the gunmen crossed over from Benue at about 10:30 am on Saturday and started shooting sporadically, killing many people and cows.

"Upon realising they could not achieve their aim, the Agatu youths opened fire on the cows, killing many people and 83 cows instantly while others who sustained bullet wounds are lying in the bush," he said.

The paramount ruler of the area, Mai Loko, Alhaji Abubakar Ahmed Sabo told newsmen that over 20 men, women and children were killed in frequent attacks on Fulani people by Agatu youths.

However, most people think this is a plot by the Fulani people in Nasarawa State to implicate the people of Agatu and therefore justify the dastard acts of their barbaric herdsmen.

  1. Why should you a law enforcement man suspect people that are still in fear that reprisal attack? Why should you even mention a place? Common sense should tell you that by mention Agatu or any other area is inviting trouble to that area. Foolishness in the name of wisdom. You think security is only carrying gun to arrest, shoot armed robbers/thieves and stand by the gate to watch over someone? Go and re-learn.

  2. Tell that to the birds! If its a setup by the Fulani's herdsmen to coverup the none sense they have been doing, then I with call that a crazy strategy but if its not, I will say one can only get what he or she deserve.it Serves them right!

  3. Jst imagine hw humans are killed lyk animals also. God help us

  4. Where is our Government? May God have mercy.

  5. Hey hello house this picture and the news don't depict truth.
