Feb 7, 2018 – Fulani Herdsmen Turned Robbers Kidnapped 2, Robbed & Killed 8 Passengers On Benin Ore Expressway As Policemen Ran For Cover

At least 8 persons were shot dead on Tuesday while two persons were kidnapped when gunmen suspected to be herdsmen attacked passengers on Ore-Benin Road in Odigbo LGA Area of Ondo State.

Several others were critically injured in the attack carried out around 4p.m. when buses coming from Benin and heading to Lagos or coming from Lagos and heading to Benin or Akure were attacked.

According to a female student, who survived the attack, the armed men shot sporadically at the buses and forced the passengers to flee, leaving their buses and belongings on the road.

The terrified lady told our correspondent that the incident caused gridlock for hours on the Ore-Benin-Lagos Expressway.

The female student, who spoke with our correspondent on the phone, said she was returning from school when they ran into the herdsmen on the road.

She said:

“I’m schooling at Igbinedion University, Okada. I had planned to return to Lagos on Sunday but when my friend told me her parents were coming to pick her, I decided to go with them and save my money.
“We set out early. We got to Ore about 2:30p.m. But immediately we got to a village after Ore 30 minutes later, we saw three commercial buses parked on the highway in between the buses were two cars. We all thought it was traffic.”

The student added that the traffic had built up. But before she knew what was happening, some people who dressed in Fulani regalia came out of the buses and started aiming at the tyres of vehicles in the traffic.

“Before we knew what was happening, they started shooting those who tried to escape into the bush and a lot of people were killed in the process.
“They operated unchallenged, there was serious commotion on the expressway; even the villagers also run for their lives. It was a driver of a sport utility vehicle who came from behind and chased the herdsmen away from the road.”

Another survivor said the armed men used one of the vehicles snatched to block the highway and robbed passengers.
He said one of the buses on sighting the robbers ran into the ditch and left the passengers seriously wounded.
The source said many of the passengers ran into the bush while two 18-seater buses, one commercial car and a private car were robbed.

Others buses belong to Young Shall Grow and Iyare Motors.
For 30 minutes, the source said, vehicles could not move on the major road linking the states as policemen who were at various roadblocks on the road ran for cover. He said the situation was brought under control after the military men moved in to dislodge the gunmen.

    • @Oyinkansola Daniel, if you say’there is no hope for this country again’. It means there is no you again. We all need to wake up and stop tormenting Nigeria by what we say. See good around Nigeria and not evil. Shit happens all over the world, not only in Nigeria.

  1. I may have my utmost dislike and reservations for the fulani herders but this is simply a case of armed robbers disguising as fulani. You cant call somebody a herdsman if you dont see him with cattle.

    • The killing was massive (true) could be anyone but Nigeria today is more than just government and the people it’s more about power now and to be honest this isn’t going to end well with all this going on the killing is just rising again cause this is an act of war….and NIGERIANS ARE READY most especially the

    “As they campaign vigorously for elections, you would think, they are coming to grow the economy, enthrone justice, breed unity and tolerance, love for one another.
    No, they are coming to elevate Hausa-Fulani supremacy, to reposition the security agencies by sacking all competent hands and replace them with their kinsmen to drive their ethnic domination of the Biafrans, the Fulani herdsmen will be armed and encouraged to slaughter us with impunity, and their masters will protect them.
    They are coming to ensure that my people are enslaved forever. Those who do not, believe me, will soon see it happen before their eyes.”

    -Nnamdi Kanu 6th Feb. 2014

    • My thoughts exactly my dear. He foresaw the future. Everything he said is happening. This is just the beginning. I’ll vote Buhari this time.
      I never voted in the last election. So he’ll keep restructuring and fight corruption.

    • Nigeria is our nation… Lets uphold peace and unity… Equal right and justice is prevailing now… One indivisible Nigeria

  5. Either remnant of bokoharam or not, what is the president doing about it. These blood sucking deamons are on a killing rampage and the president sits comfortably in his office doing nothing. Security of life and property comes first.

  6. this is the consequences of voting a coward as president. when a pride of lion is being led by a cow, they behave like cow. we must cease to behave like cows and vote out Buhari in 2019.

    • You are an alien. You dare call President Buhari a coward. I am still laughing. Go on and ask your bro and sis in the 80’s. Go back to history jare.

  7. Is it not time that the government should legalize guns for every body ? How many more lives have to be sacrificed for Nigerian government government to undestand that a country with one police man to 850000 citizens can not work out!

  8. Give us state police and empower them with training and super arms.it will.quench this agressions immediately

  9. If the government will not protect us, at least start issuing gun license to us the citizens! I’d rather fighting than have one goro-toothed idiot come use me as target practice all because the government we have in Nigeria is centered around stealing from us the citizens now they are staking our lives in their stupid region to region favor pattern of governance! All of you will be ashamed one day to say you have served this country in any capacity!!!

  12. All those that are complaining now were shouting sia buhari some few years back. Pls we should endure it because we caused it ourselves. I pray that the president will continue to teach us listen of refusing goodluck

  13. This is a big issue now in our Country. I think it is time for each State in this Republic to defend itself. I still believe in stop and search for now until the situation becomes less intense. If there are group of Fulani people who cannot give a better explanation of their mission in Southern State they should be charged to the Court. If they were caught with weapons, they should be given instant judgement. If these people aware that there is a state you cannot mess with, trust me they will never dare coming to that state. The issue of these Fulanis is becoming problematic and we must stop it right now.

    The Governor of Benue state has given the farmers right to fight back and we will see who is going to have an upper hand. Although I believe this issue has some political undertones and some politicians are behind orchestrating this attack in order to discredit this administration but every state has to find way to defend itself in Nigeria. Some of these Fulanis arrested earlier migrated from Niger and they spoke French. All of them were disappeared before their court date.

  14. Lt ibrahim umar wit due respect sir, d incident people are lamenting over did it actuakky happen or not. I think dats wat we hv to address for now to avoid civil unrest and anarchy instead of telling us wu is impersonating or not.

  15. Armed robbers have develop new tactic, they now dress like Fulani’s jux 2 rob and cause havoc d earlier we realise dis d better.. Buhari or no buhari people shud let him be cum 2019 everyone shud endeavor 2 vote and let’s c if Nigerians won’t complain about d new president.. Its high time we kip shut and take action….. We complain 2 much
