Despite the presence of soldiers taking part in Operation Cat Race, suspected Fulani herdsmen on Monday razed houses as they invaded settlements in Tombo ward, Logo local government area in Benue State.

The herdsmen, who reportedly arrived the communities in SUV, came with their cattle which grazed freely on farmlands.

The leader of the community, Job Tiza, told The Nation that the herdsmen destroyed farm crops and razed houses in the affected communities.

Mr. Tiza said farmers in the area have deserted their homes and are now taking refuge in Ayilamo, a community in Logo LGA.

According to him, the herdsmen displayed their weapons in the presence of soldiers who are taking part in Operation Cat Race, a military exercise in the state.
