Unconfirmed reports reaching atiterkula have it that At least 24 alleged Fulani marauders have been killed by a team of soldiers in Keana Local Government Area of Nasarawa State after they were over powered during a raid on the settlement.

The soldiers who according to sources acted on a tip off,  stormed the Fulani settlements about a kilometre away from Keana Town in the early hours of Thursday in a convoy, and were engaged in a shoot out with the Fulani herdsmen who opened fire on sighting the convoy.Image

In the ensuing  exchange it is said that least 24 were killed in the battle to subdue the marauders.

A witness, Ibrahim Jalo, said that about 24 corpses were evacuated from the Fulani settlements on the road to Giza Town.

“I was on my way to the office when I saw people running and later saw soldiers rushing into the town in convoy asking for the Fulani. I saw over 24 dead bodies of Fulani being taken to Lafia in a white Hilux van,” he said.

When contacted, Muhammed Husseini, secretary of Miyetti Allah, a Fulani interest group, said that over 30 Fulani were killed.

Mr. Husseini however accused the Federal Government of complicity in the killing of the Fulani. He declared that his organisation would sue the government and demand for the rights of its people.

“I’m presently in the mortuary receiving corpses. They killed over 30 of our men for no reason. This is genocide and we will approach the International Criminal Court, ICC,” he threatened.
