Several persons have been reportedly killed while a police station was badly damaged in Otukpa, Ogbadibo LGA of Benue State in a clash between suspected Fulani Herdsmen and villagers.

Several persons were injured and rendered homeless in the attack that broke out yesterday.

“It is happening right now in Akpagodogbo Otukpa. Some people have been killed.



“I learnt the casualty figure is more than four on the part of the community.

“Those at branch are running to Agbaha while the police is patrolling the street and taking every Fulani herdsman into protective custody,” he added.


The source said those injured have been rushed to the Midland Hospital, Branch Otukpa.
