Benue shut down by protesters over killings

Protesters on the streets on Wednesday

Makurdi, the capital of Benue State has been brought to a standstill by protesters over the ongoing killings in the state by suspected Fulani herdsmen.

The protesters were said to have taken over major streets of the state, calling on the federal government to come to their aide.

Over 100 persons have been reportedly killed between this week in Guma, Gwer and Logo areas of the state by suspected herdsmen.

The protesters, mostly women garbed in black attires, according to Daily Post, are matched around the Bishop of Makurdi Dioceses house, weeping while singing corrosively, ‘Go and tell Buhari they are killing us.’
