One Japheth Toryila has been reportedly killed by suspected herdsmen in Governor Samuel Ortom’s hometown.
The victim, a 200 level student of Benue State University who farms to fend for himself, met his end when he went to his farm at Tom-Anyin, close to Gbajimba to work on his farm.
The suspected herdsmen reportedly came in around 3:00PM, during which they killed Japheth, a Public Administration student.
Two ther people were also killed in the attack. Attempts to reach the Benue State Police Command for confirmation were not successful as the Public Relations Officer, DSP Anene Sewuese could not be reached as at the time of filing this report.
Benue has been the worst hit by herders, of all the Middlebelt States. Many see it as no surprise because it is also the most Christian-dominated State in the region.
