Suspected herdsmen on Thursday attacked the Mbanyiar community in Guma Local Government Area of Benue State, forcing the acting District Head, Tyoor Oliver Chado, to flee from his house.

A native of the community simply identified himself as Terka, said the suspected herdsmen were heavily armed with sophisticated weapons when they stomed the residence of the community head and attacked his household.

During the attack, the herdsmen were alleged to have raped some female members of the traditional ruler’s family and destroyed crops stored in the barn.

Confirming the attack on his community, Tyoor Oliver Chado said the herdsmen numbering 11 attacked his residence around 2am, but he was able to escape.

According to him, his wife and two of his in-laws were tortured and raped by the herdsmen who also destroyed his farm crops.

“Since the incident happened, I have not seen my wife and the two other in-laws, but the Livestock Guard who have gone to the area told me they were tortured and raped, but not killed.

“I have reported the matter to the police and sent transport to go and convey them back to Daudu where I am now taking refuge,” he noted.

He further said the herdsmen also uprooted their cassava and used the melon and yam from his barn to feed their animals.

“The herdsmen are settled in Uvir, in Mbabai, and they usually come from there to attack our people. When they came last week, they chased away my people at Tse-Agudu and settled there. Tse-Agudu is less than a kilometre from my house,” he added.

But when contacted, the Police Public Relations Officer, Benue State Command, Catherine Sewuese Anene, said she was yet to receive the report.

Meanwhile, KanyiDaily had reported how suspected Fulani herdsmen raped a 15-year-old girl to coma in Benue state.
