Presidency Reacts to Alleged Massacre of 81 in Benue by Herdsmen, Questions Accuracy of Death Toll

The presidency says it is checking the accuracy of reports claiming that 81 people were killed by herdsmen in Benue state. 

We Tonygists reported it  that the traditional ruler of Logo council area in Benue state, Chief Jimmy Meeme, who spoke with Channels Television, over the invasion of rural communities in the state by rampaging herdsmen, said 70 persons were killed in six out of the 10 council wards in his domain, and blamed the sustained attacks on his people by the herdsmen.
According to residents, the latest killings increased the number of deaths from herdsmen attack to 81 in the last two weeks.
As the news of the resurgence of herdsmen attacks continue to make rounds online and social media, the question on everyone's lips are...'Will the silence on the presidency continue?'.
The presidency, through the Twitter page of its digital communications office - @DigicommsNG, has reacted to the viral reports saying it is checking the accuracy of reports claiming that 81 people were killed by herdsmen in Benue state.
The digital communications arm of the presidency also said the Nigerian police is currently investigating the reports and would release a statement shortly, adding that some of the pictures in circulation were from the genocide in Congo, back in 2014.
