A Fulani herdsman was this morning arrested in Akwanga, Nassarawa State, with AK47 magazines and bullets.
Those at the scene started beating him but security operatives stopped them. He was arrested and handed over to the police. He was arrested by members of the Nassarawa Taskforce on his way to Jos. He said his name is Likita.
A resident of Akwanga who doesn’t want to be mentioned said he confessed to be on his way to Plateau as six of his gangs had already left. When the information cannot be verified, the Benue State government have on many occassion accused the Nassarawa State government of harbouring herdsmen who launch attacks on Benue sacking villagers and killing people.
