Man who survived Fulani herdsmen attack in Benue has cause to thank God
But for the grace of God, a young man who travelled to his hometown in Benue State, Ochigbo Job, would have been dead by now after suspected Fulani herdsmen stormed his Orokam community in Ogbadigbo Local Government Area of the state and wrecked havoc on the people.
According to Job who works with an airline in Lagos State, the herdsmen who wielded guns, machetes and other dangerous weapons, took his people by surprise and shot sporadically, stabbing people and chasing them out of the community before setting their houses, food stuff and livestock on fire.
Job whose brothers and other close relatives were also attacked, survived but with a lifelong scar on his face, took to Facebook to thank God for surviving the attack with the following words:
“Glory be to God! One year after Fulani herdsmen wanted to kill us in Orokam Benue state. God Almighty saved me, my brother and his friend. Join me in thanking God.”
