Suspected Herdsmen Kill 5 In Adamawa, Delta States

No fewer than four persons are feared dead following a midnight attack by suspected herdsmen on Kikon, a village in the Numan Local Government of Adamawa State.

The herdsmen were said to have stormed the community around 1am on Sunday, burning down the entire village and killing two men and two women.

Othman Abubakar, the Police Public Relations Officer for the Adamawa State Police Command, confirmed the attack, adding that four people were killed in the incident.

Also in Delta State, at least one person has been killed in a fresh attack by gunmen suspected to be Fulani herdsmen at Onicha-Olona community, Delta State.


A middle-aged woman was allegedly raped in a different attack in Ovwor-Olomu in the Aniocha North and Ughelli South areas of the state.

It was gathered that the incident at Onicha-Olona occurred on Friday when the herdsmen shot the farmer dead after he refused to allow their cattle graze on his farm, which they later set ablaze.
