OMG!!! Tears In Benue As Gunmen Strike Residents, See What Happened

Published

There was total panic and confusion in the Yelewata community in the Guma Local Government Area, LGA, of Benue state when two persons were gruesomely murdered and another taken hostage in an early hour on Saturday 18th of September 2021, when suspected armed herdsmen invaded the community.

The recent attack by the gunmen come three weeks after a similar attack in the same community that claimed the lives of eight persons including a mother and her four children who died during the attack.

According to the Vanguard report, we learned that the gunmen stormed the area in the early hours of 6 and 7 am on Saturday, Mr. James Igbudu, who happens to be an inlaw to the abducted victim in his statement confirmed the attack by the gunmen.

According to him, he said, ” early this (Saturday) morning I received a call from my in- laws that between 6 and 7 am armed Fulani herdsmen invaded Yelewata, Guma LGA, which is my in- laws’ home.

” From the account, the invaders killed two persons, a young man, and woman and they also took my father- in- law away.

” They caught my father- in- law in the bush where he went to gather fodder for his goats. The young man that was killed was his cousin.

” This attack like others was unprovoked. They entered into the community and started shooting sporadically. The people fled from their homes; others hid from the herdsmen. The two people that were killed were those they caught up with. After the attack, they retreated into the bush.

” As we speaking selected youths in the community and myself have moved into the bush to search for my in- law. If we are lucky we may find him alive but we are still combing the bushes especially the path through which the invaders escaped.

Mr. James said the attacks by the gunmen were immediately reported to the police including the army in Yelewata but the people complained that they could not get help quickly when they raised the alarm.

Meanwhile, when the journalist contacted the Police Public Relations Officer, Deputy Superintendent, DSP, Catherine Anene, she said she have not confirmed the attack.
