An unconfirmed number of persons have been reported killed in an attack by gunmen on Umogidi village of Entekpa-Adoka district in Otukpo LGA of Benue state.

Anene Sewuese, Benue police spokesperson, who confirmed the incident to TheCable on Thursday said the force was yet to get details of the attack.

“There was an attack, but I am yet to get details on it,” the police spokesperson said.

There are reports that at least 46 people were killed after the gunmen surrounded and attacked the villagers on Wednesday.


Benue has continued to record attacks by gunmen. In March 2023, it was reported that no fewer than 50 persons were allegedly killed by suspected herders who invaded communities in Kwande LGA of the state.

In February, some gunmen were also said to have attacked the Ikobi community in Apa LGA, killing three persons.

On one of the occasions, TheCable reported that three kinsmen of Samuel Ortom, the state governor, were killed by the gunmen.
