Suspected herdsmen on Saturday killed 11 persons in a fresh attack on Tombu village in Logo Local Government Area of Benue State.
The state governor, Mr Samuel Ortom, confirmed the renewed killings to reporters shortly after an emergency meeting with the joint socio-cultural groups in the state.
Governor Ortom lamented that more than 40,000 people have been displaced for fear of unprovoked attacks and called for the arrest of the leadership of Miyetti Allah as a means of ending the killings in the state.
However, the police are yet to confirm the attack.
Meanwhile, the groups have challenged the Inspector General of Police to visit Tombu village to ascertain that the series of attacks carried out in the state were beyond communal crises as claimed.
While speaking to Channels Television, spokespersons for the group and President General of Mzough U-Tiv, Mr Edward Ujege, called on the United Nations to come to the rescue of Benue indigenes.
