The Benue State Government on Thursday held a memorial service for victims of herdsmen’s attack.

Scores of innocent indigenes of the state were slaughtered on January 1 and 3, 2018 by rampaging Fulani herdsmen.

The state Governor, Samuel Ortom also announced yesterday that over 70 dead bodies of Benue people were recovered from two local government areas of the state.

“Most of them were women and children,” he said.
