6 Herdsmen, 150 Cows Killed In Nasarawa
Someone would think Nigeria is at war with the amount of blood being shed every other day.
Few days ago, over 86 people were brutally murdered by suspected herdsmen in Plateau State.
Till date, no one has been arrested.
On Wednesday, soldiers deployed in the Benue and Nasarawa states border have allegedly killed about six Fulani herdsmen and over 150 cows at Akpanagya, in the Keana Local Government Area of Nasarawa State.
The acting Police Public Relations Officer, Nasarawa State Command, ASP Usman Samaila, who confirmed this, said the command received information that the military personnel came from Benue and carried out the operation that led to the killing of six people suspected to be Fulani herders in the state.
He said the command did not know what really happened between the Fulani herders and the military men.
He said, “I can confirm to you that our men went to the scene of the incident and recovered about six dead bodies killed by the suspected military men in the area.”
According to him, the command had already drafted its personnel to Keana Local Government Area of the state to avert any possible future crisis.
Reacting to the killings of their people and cows, the Chairman of the Miyyeti Allah Cattle Breeders Association, Nasarawa State Chapter, Muhammed Hussein, expressed sadness over the attack.
Hussein, while addressing journalists at the Association’s secretariat in Lafia on Wednesday, said, “We are not happy that six of our members were shot dead by some bad eggs who are in the military.
“If the military suspects any Fulani man for any crime, they should arrest and prosecute him and not to just kill like that.
He added, “If you claim that the Fulani people committed a crime, how about the cows, what did the cows do that they will kill 150 cows?”
