Soldiers Are Protecting Fulani Herdsmen Killing Us – Benue Youths Cry Out

Some youths of Apa in Benue State have raised an alarm that operatives of the Nigerian Army posted to their area to protect them are rather protecting the Fulani killer herdsmen ravaging the local government. Recall that suspected Fulani herdsmen recently murdered more than 100 people in Apa local government area, including traditional chiefs.

The attack prompted a mass protest by youths of the area who blocked the Oweto-Loko/Abuja expressway. A youth leader in the area, named Ahmed Ocheje who spoke to journalists called on the Commandants of the NASME Barracks and 72 Special Forces Battalion in Makurdi to tell Nigerians what they sent their men to do in Apa. The youth leader said despite the presence of the military the marauding Fulani herdsmen still carry out their terror acts without any resistance.
