Four killed as Fulani herdsmen, farmers clash in Taraba

Four persons were killed on Thursday in a clash between the Fulani herdsmen and farmers in Minda, Lau Local Government Area of Taraba State.

The Public Relations Officer, Taraba State Police Command, David Misal, confirmed the development.

Misal said two persons were killed after the father of the young grazer, whom he identified as a Fulani boy, visited the bereaved family and was attacked on his way back home.

“This led to a fresh crisis that led to the death of two others”, he said.

An eyewitness told reporters that trouble started when a farmer in the village apprehended a herdsman grazing on his guinea corn farm.

“When he approached the grazer, he was attacked with a machete and struck to death.

“A passerby who attempted to intervene was also said to have been killed by the herdsman.”
