Finally! Fulani herdsmen reveals why they attacked Benue Community

According to a leader of the Miyetti Allah cattle Breeders in Benue State, Garus Gololo, says the recent attack on two communities in the state was because residents of the communities attacked and stole their cows, the Nation reports. 

If we can recall on New Year day, it was reported that Fulani herdsmen attacked some Benue communities, killing 20 persons including a pregnant woman.

However, In an interview with BBC News pidgin English, the Miyetti Allah cattle Breeders in Benue State, Gololo has said that over 1000 of their cows were stolen at Nengere when their owners were relocating to Taraba through Nasarawa State. He said the herdsmen were only defending themselves from thieves.

Although, we don't know yet how true this story is, we'll wait first for the Benue community leaders to tell their own side of the story. 

We are also  waiting for Police investigation in to this matter. Log on to mntrendsnews as we bring you the latest stories as they unfold.
