fulani-herdsmen

Suspected fulani herdsmen attacked Tiv farmers in the afternoon on Monday, June 4.

The farmers were in their farm at Dinya village when nine armed herdsmen on three motorcycles came and forced them out of the farm.

The suspected herdsmen told the farmers that the land they were farming on was sold to them by the Village Head of Kwararafa (Dekechin Kwararafa),  Alh. Ibrahim Isah.

They were shocked and tried to resist their attempt to chase them out of their farm, but they started attacking them with cutlasses as they ran for their dear lives.

However, the village head of Kwararafa, Alh. Ibrahim Isah, however, denied the allegations that he had sold out the land belonging to Tiv people in the area to herdsmen.
