Armed soldiers and riot policemen have now taken over the three communities in Gassol Local Government Area of Taraba State where herdsmen reportedly killed twelve people and seriously wounded about 18 others while 13 houses were also burnt.

Fulani herdsmen reportedly launched the attack Friday night, following a long standing dispute over farm lands.

The herdsmen reportedly stormed the three communities in the night and started attacking the villagers who had come back to farm on their lands.
