One person has been killed and scores of others injured in a fresh farmers/herders clash in Jankwe area of Obi Local Government Area of Nasarawa State.
Local sources told Daily Trust yesterday that the clash erupted in Duduguru village as a result of attempt by some herders to retrieve an axe belonging to a herder who destroyed farm produce some weeks ago and his axe was confiscated by farmers as evidence.
According to the source, the move to retrieve the axe was resisted by the farmers Saturday evening and the issue turned into violence which led to the death of one person and injury to scores of others.
The Nasarawa State Police Public Relations Officer, DSP Idrisu Kennedy, said the command was aware of the killing of one person and had since deployed more personnel to calm the situation.
