Armed attack in Nigeria kills 47 civilians

Abuja, Apr 7 (Prensa Latina) An armed attack by killers against a village in central Benue state has reportedly killed 47 people and wounded several others.

According to police sources and witnesses of the violent events, Fulani herdsmen, who are in dispute with farmers over the control of lands, attacked the villagers.

Due to clashes in Benue in recent months, harvests have been reduced, and food production has declined, which could lead to food insecurity among the population, according to humanitarian organizations.

Nigeria, Africa’s most populous country with some 216 million inhabitants, has seen more violence due to a rise in inter-community clashes and the actions of radical groups such as Boko Haram and the Islamic State that operate in the country’s northern and central regions.
