Another attack has occurred in Adeyi Village in Loko Development Area of Nasarawa State, resulting to the death of 83 cows and some others injured, Channels TV reports.
The Nasarawa Police Public Relations Officer, Ismaila Numan, confirmed the attack on Monday.
He told reporters that investigations were on and called on the people of the village not to take laws into their hands.

Adeyi Village is a riverine community with residents who are mostly fishermen.
The village has a number of herdsmen who reside there with their families and they carry out their activities peacefully.

The Director Personnel Management of Loko Development Area, Danlami Ibrahim, claimed the Agatus were attacking them for harbouring the Fulanis.
He said recent attacks in the area had affected their fishing activities and appealed to both governors of Benue and Nasarawa States to take swift action to check the attacks ‘before it gets out of hand’.
The owner of the cow, Bajoga Muhammed, who spoke in Hausa, gave an account of the incident and faulted the government for not adopting stringent measures.
