Some gunmen who are suspected to be Fulani herdsmen have struck again on Thursday.

They attacked a Benue Links bus conveying passengers to Otukpo en route Naka road Gwer West LGA at Tyolaha village.

One passenger was killed and several others were injured during the attack by the marauders.

DAILY POST reports that the latest attack is not the first time marauding herdsmen had carried out such gruesome attacks on passengers along the dilapidated road.

Tyolaha village has been a hotspot for persistent attacks by suspected Fulani Herdsmen.

The herdsmen who were almost 15 in number thwarted any resistance by their victims which caused them to disperse on an escape with ease.

These incessant attacks have caused most residents to flee and farmers to relocate from that part of the road while the remnants call on the government and security operatives for protection.

Benue Police Public Relations Officer, Anekwe Catherine, who confirmed the incident to the DAILY POST said “a bus belonging to Benue Links which was heading to Otukpo was attacked by unknown gunmen and three persons including women were wounded and one person died this morning.”
