At least 10 people have been reportedly killed while several others were injured after gunmen attacked Tse Iortyer near Yelewata community in Guma LGA of Benue State.

Infobase gathered that the gunmen invaded the village about 20:00Hours, and set houses ablaze.

As at press time, report say over 20 people were seriously injured, while several others were still missing.

Benue State has been under attack in the past months. Fulani herdsmen have been accused of perpetrating such attacks.

But some security experts say the Benue attack is beyond herdsmen/farmers clash.

Benue State is known for farming, analysts say food crises loom if government fails to find quick solution to protect lives and properties there and other parts of the country.

Noble Laurel Wole Soyinka in a recent warning to the Muhammadu Buhari-led government said that the crises may degenerate to ethnic cleansing.
