An eye witness revealed that the armed men stormed the village about 9 pm to 10 pm heavily armed with dangerous weapons and started shooting sporadically.
According to them ,the very sad news is that those Fulani gunmen who killed 25 in Dundu Village of Kwall district Bassa LGA is alleged to have been enjoying security protection.
The community has under siege since the return of Jang and Lalong administration leaving them to count their loses, as another attack happened again around 7pm yesterday where 10 children, 7 women and others are now receiving treatment in a nearby hospital in the community.
“This is too bad as we are planning for a mass burial of the last attack. So far we have more than 500 IDPs, we call on International organizations please come to our aid.
“Following the serial attacks on our people that left over seventy people dead and properties destroyed, we told you it was a confirmation of the threat by the herdsmen that N’CHA was just the beginning.
“In continuation of that avowed determination to eliminate the Irigwe race, the Fulani herdsmen have continually unleashed mayhem on our communities, killing, maiming, burning and destroying farmlands.
Since January this year, we have continually picked corpses of our loved ones, some burnt beyond recognition from night attacks by Fulani herdsmen militia, some killed in the homes, some in the farms, and others on their way home from places of leisure and business.
“When we reacted to a claim by the Miyetti Allah group in January of missing cattle, we told you it was a ploy to justify another round of killings. true to this, the Fulani militia, which the federal government has refused to brand a terrorist organization to the dismay of Nigerians, have continued to visit our villages with orchestrated and unwarranted carnage.
“Today, we buried four, from an attack on Nzharuvo, which left five, mostly children dead and one injured, but here is a breakdown of the various serial attacks we have suffered;
