No fewer than 17 people have been killed in a fresh attack by herdsmen at Olosu, a village in Okpokwu Local Government Area of Benue State.

The Chairman of the LGA, Mr Ogwuche Olofu, confirmed this on Monday.

The herdsmen are said to have attacked the community on Monday after accusing youths in the village of attacking them.

According to Mr Olofu, the attack took place about 30 minutes after he left the village next to where the camp of the herdsmen that were reportedly attacked.

Apart from those that were killed, the LG chairman said many people were still missing.

The police have, however, yet to confirm the number of people killed in the attack.

This comes on the same day the Presidency announced that President Buhari would visit Benue, Yobe, Zamfara and Rivers states which have been affected by the herdsmen-farmers conflict.
