Things are turning worse in Benue after suspected herdsmen attacked Gbajimba town, in Guma Local Government Area, on Monday, killing two persons, and destroying Governor Samuel Ortom’s farm house.

This attack came less than 24 hours after Yogbo, another community in the same local government area, also came under heavy attack by suspected herdsmen, which left six persons dead and several property and farmlands destroyed.

This is made known by the State Police Command Headquarters, the Police Commissioner, Fatai Owoseni and Chairman of Guma Local Government Area, Mr. Anthony Shawon, while confirming the report said the herdsmen, who were backed by militant gangs, stormed the communities in the afternoon, on Monday.
“The herdsmen, backed by their militia, invaded Waku village this afternoon (yesterday) and killed two persons. They are also getting close to Gbajimba town, the local government headquarters and as I speak with you, they have attacked and sacked Governor Ortom’s farm house in Gbajimba.
“Our fear is that if we are not careful, they might overrun the local government headquarters the way they are going,” he said.

Formerly, the Benue State Governor, Samuel Ortom rejected the cattle colony plan that was suggested by the federal government in solving herdsmen-farmers clashes.
