Three persons including a lawyer and his wife have been killed by suspected herdsmen following an attack at Agboughul in Makurdi, the Benue State capital.
The incident according to residents occurred in the early hours on Wednesday morning.
The lawyer is identified as Moses Udam.
This attack comes a few days after four persons were killed and seven others injured by suspected herdsmen at Tse Angbande, a suburb of Makurdi.
The incidents have created anxiety with fears of renewed attacks by herdsmen.
Governor Samuel Ortom in reaction condemned the killings.
He asked the Federal Government to step up plans and strategies to stamp out terrorism and armed herdsmen who have been terrorising the state since 2009 and have refused to obey the state open grazing prohibition and ranches establishment law of 2017.
He expressed worry over the violent herdsmen targeting of the men of the agro-rangers and the state livestock guard operatives.
