Report reaching our desk from Benue has it that Ugboju in Agatu is currently under herdsmen attack.

It was gathered that the community has been taken over by gunmen suspected to be herdsmen.

The attack, sources said, has forced many residents to desert their homes for safety.

“As we speak now, Fulani herdsmen have surrounded Ugboju community in Agatu LG area of Benue State, shooting sporadically and invading the land,” Ikwulono John Anthony, a Supervising Councilor in Agatu said Monday night.

“Those in authority and security men should take note and swing into action as a matter of urgency, please. I am equally informing the concerned authorities now as well,” the councillor added.

This invasion came barely 24 hours after herdsmen killed at least two persons in Ole-Gobidu in Agatu.
