Several people were killed and many houses razed to the ground when suspected Fulani herdsmen attacked Okoloko in Agatu Local Government Area of Benue State on Tuesday.

According to reports, the heavily armed men who came in large numbers on life boats through the Benue river from Nasarawa and raided Akwu, Aila, Okoloko and other villages of Agatu.

Benue State All Progressives Congress (APC) in a statement released through its Media Director, Mr. Anthony Ikwulono, confirmed the attack and called on the state governor, Dr. Samuel Ortom, and his Deputy to make an unscheduled visit to the area to assess the situation for themselves and mobilize security to the area. It describes the attack as barbaric and unwarranted. Beneath is the statement:

The All Progressives Congress(APC), Benue State Chapter has in a strong term condemned attacks on the people of Okokolo in Agatu Local Government Area by Fulani Herdsmen setting the entire village ablaze.

It’s barbaric, Unwarranted and uncalled for. We, therefore, call on the governor of Benue State, Samuel Ortom, and his deputy, Engineer Benson Abounu to pay an Unscheduled visit to the area to assess the damages caused by the herdsmen.

We equally appeal to the governor to deploy extra security men to Agatu local government area.

Okokolo is the ancestral home of Agbaduma and the hometown of the state director of publicity, Mr. John Ikwulono.
