Why We Are Attacking Agatu – Fulani Herdsmen


Many were killed and houses razed to the ground when suspected Fulani herdsmen attacked villages in Agatu Local Government Area of Benue State last week. A clearer picture of why that attack happened emerged yesterday at a stakeholders meeting organized by the Inspector General Of Police, IGP, Solomon Arase.

According to the leader of the herdsmen in the besieged community, Ardo Boderi, over 10,000 of their cattle were allegedly killed by the people of the area.

The meeting held in Makurdi, the Benue state capital, had in attendance top Benue state government functionaries, chiefs and major stakeholders from Agatu and Fulani leaders in both Benue and Nasarawa state and presided over by the IGP.

Ado Boderi, who spoke on behalf of the Fulani community insisted that the act sparked off the crisis but decried the role being played by criminal elements from both sides which he claimed escalated the crisis.
