Gunmen attack Ogbadibo community

By Egbe Attah

Unknown gunmen suspected to be herdsmen on Sunday afternoon attacked Atamaka community in Owukpa, Ogbadibo Local Government of Benue State.

The Voice gathered that the attackers stormed the community and started shooting sporadically.

A source from the area, who simply identified himself as Odo said one Ebonyi Ejeh and many others were terribly wounded by the assailants.

The source said the attackers fled into Ichama forest after carrying out the operation.

“The victims have been taken to St Mary’s Hospital, Okpoga in Okpokwu Local Government Area and the vigilantes chased the attackers but I don’t know now if they caught any of them,” Odo maintained.

This correspondent’s attempt to reach the Divisional Police Officer (DPO) for Ogbadibo for confirmation, however, proved abortive as his telephone number was not accessible as at the time of filing this report.
