Benue farmers slam N100bn lawsuit on Fulani herdsmen

18 April 2016, 14:04

Abuja - The people of Tyoshin community in the Gwer-West Local Government Area of Benue State have filed a motion ex parte before a Makurdi High Court, seeking N100bn from six Fulani herdsmen for destroying their farms.

The plaintiffs, led by Shuwem Mnguduguen, alleged that six Fulani herdsmen – Alhaji Doka, Alhaji Danka, Alhaji Shagari, Alhaji Dogo, Alhaji Ilo and Alhaji Ibrahim – destroyed their farms and land.

Justice Morris Ikpambese granted the motion brought forward by the counsel for the plaintiffs, while ordering that the writ of summons should be served on the respondents by substituted means.

He said the writ of summons should be served in the office of the chairman, civilian joint task force on the Tiv-Fulani affairs in Benue and Nasarawa states – which is domiciled in the premises of the office of the deputy governor of the state.

The judge said he was satisfied with the submission of the plaintiff’s’ counsel that efforts made to effect direct service on the respondents had proved abortive as shown by the exhibit before the court.
