An unconfirmed number of persons have been killed in a clash between herdsmen and villagers in Song local government area of Adamawa state.

The clash, which occurred in Simba and Shure villages on Friday, also left many houses destroyed.

Trouble started when the herders took their cattle to a pond said to be the only source of water in the area.

This led to a confrontation between the herdsmen and one of the villagers who was said to have been injured upon confronting the herders.

On learning about the incident, the villagers subsequently attacked the herdsmen, reportedly killing an unconfirmed number of them.

The herders, thereafter, launched a reprisal attack on the community.

Some persons were also said to have died in the reprisal attack, while houses were also burnt down.

TheCable was unable to confirm the number of casualties in the incident as of press time.

Othman Abubakar, spokesman of Adamawa police command, confirmed there was an attack but could not give details.

“When I get the details, I will call you back. I’m not sure of the casualties yet,” he told TheCable on Sunday.

He also said the command had not been able to make any arrest regarding the incident.
