The incident led to a reprisal on Tiv villagers, as 10 people were killed on Tuesday.A resident, David Korbee, who lost his brother in the Tuesday attack, told journalists that two of his female children were still missing.He said, “We recovered six bodies yesterday (Tuesday) and buried them today (Wednesday). This morning, the vigilantes found four more bodies in the bush and we intend to bury them this afternoon.

“As we speak, many people are still missing and we can’t tell whether they are alive or dead. The Fulani attackers are hunting and killing people on their farms, so it is difficult to ascertain the actual casualty figures.”A leader of the Bantaje Chiefdom, Yahaya Rufai, in whose domain the attack happened, confirmed the incident, adding that six farmers were killed at the boundary between Gassol and Wukari local government areas. headtopics.com
