Armed men suspected to be Fulani herdsmen have again launched a deadly attack in Odugbeho community in Agatu Local Government Area of Benue State, killing over 40 residents.

The armed men reportedly invaded the community on Sunday night, killing residents and injuring scores.

The  state’s Police Public Relations Officer, DSP Anene Sewuese Catharine, however, said when contacted that she was yet to receive the report. 

However, the Senator representing the Benue South Senatorial District, Senator Abah Moro, confirmed the incident in a statement he posted on his official Facebook page.

The senator, who condemned the attack on his constituency, lamented the incessant killings in the area stating that “enough should be enough”.

“I’m deeply saddened by the attack on Odugbeho community in Agatu LGA on Sunday, which claimed over 40 lives of my constituents. This is highly condemnable and very unacceptable.

“For how long will this carnage continue unabated in Benue South? Enough should be enough”, the statement read.
