Nigeria In One Minute

24hrs after Benue grazing law takes effect, herdsmen kill one, injure many

Barely 24 hours after the commencement of implementation of the Open Grazing Prohibition Law in Benue State, herdsmen have killed one Ortse Kwaghdoo, and also severely injured 70-year-old Hingier Akaa at Tombo ward, Gaambe-tiev in Logo Local Government Area of the state.

The attackers, who reportedly struck early Wednesday, also left many injured, while several others have been declared missing and uncounted for.

An eyewitness, who spoke to Vanguard on condition of anonymity, said the body of late Kwaghdoo has been deposited at a mortuary at Ayilamo, a nearby village, while the injured septuagenarian was responding to treatment at a public hospital also in Ayilamo.
