Former Minister of Aviation Femi Fani-Kayode has said suspected herdsmen who attacked a church on Tuesday in Benue state are bent on perpetuating their heinous crime.
Recall that the armed herdsmen attacked St. Ignatius Quasi Parish in Ukpor-Mbalom, Ayar-Mbalom community of Gwer East Local Government Area of Benue State, killing two Catholic priests and 17 other worshipers.
ndigbonews gathered that the attackers also burnt down over 100 houses during the attack and sacked the entire community.
This morning Fulani militants slaughtered 11 worshippers and 2 priests during mass at Gwer East in Benue. It appears that the military carnage in Gwer West 6 days ago has further attracted Fulani militants to massacre and completely stamp out any form of resistance in the area.
