It was gathered that the suspected herders stormed Ukohol village during a market day and killed about 10 people before moving to nearby communities where they murdered 8 others.

The chairman of the Guma local government, Mike Ubah who confirmed the incident on Friday, said several others were injured in the attack which occurred on Thursday.

Ubah said, “My people at Ukohol were attacked by armed herders and killed about 10 people. The worst of it all is that they even killed children below the age of two years.

“They didn’t stop at that point but went to three villages/settlements around and killed another eight making it a total of 18. Ten at the market, eight in the villages when they (herders) were returning.

“The security operatives were prompt and that’s what saved the day, if they had delayed, the causality would have been more than that.

“It was a market day, they went there and started shooting. What is happening now is that they are trying to destabilise people from their villages and settlements and occupy them and graze in them at night.

“The herders appeared in black attires. No village is spared and the whole 10 council wards in Guma are affected,” the council boss added.
