No fewer than two persons were yesterday feared killed and one other abducted by suspected herdsmen at Yelwata community of Guma Local Government Area of Benue State.

His words: ‘Fulani herdsmen attacked Yelewata again, kidnapped my father-in-law, Mr. Iorver Igbo, and killed two others.’

When contacted, the Police Public Relations Officer, PPRO, DSP Catherine Anene, said that she was yet to be briefed about any attack in the area. 

It would be recalled that eight persons were on August 25, this year, reportedly killed with two others injured and another abducted by suspected herdsmen at the same Yelwata community. 

The gunmen were said to have invaded the community at about 6:00 p.m that fateful day which fell on Yelwata market day while some traders were still in the market.
