Benue state was thrown into another round of mourning on Wednesday after another set of killings by suspected herdsmen in Odidi and Ojokpailo in Okpokwu LGA.

Six persons were reportedly killed by suspected herdsmen in a set of renewed attacks on the communities.

Governor Samuel Ortom confirmed the attacks on Wednesday at the Government House in Makurdi, the state's capital.

He made the disclosure when he received a former military administrator of the state, Brigadier General Dominic Oneya (rtd), who led a delegation on a condolence visit to the governor.

Governor Ortom said two women were reported killed in Guma LGA and two persons in Logo on Tuesday, stressing that pockets of killings were still going on.

The governor reiterated his call on security agencies to arrest the leadership of Miyetti Allah Kautal Hore whom he alleged were still issuing threats of resisting implementation of the Open Grazing Prohibition and Ranches Establishment Law in the state.

Ortom confirmed the renewed attacks barely one week after the state government conducted a mass burial for more than 70 victims who died since the beginning of the new year.
