Not less than 25 Hausa/Muslims have been killed while two mosques torched in a retaliatory attack in Benue, following the killing of 17 Christian worshipers on Tuesday.
According to a BBC report, the mob barricaded roads, identified Hausa or Muslim commuters and killed them.

The leader of Izala Movement in the state, Sheikh Shuaibu, told the BBC that he counted bodies of 27 Muslims killed by the attackers at the teaching hospital.

He said a lot of Muslims have been killed, just as two mosques were razed down.

Benue State Police Command is yet to speak on the incident.
Suspected herdsmen had in the early hours of Tuesday stormed St. Ignatius Catholic Church, Ukpor-Mbalom Parish, Gwer East Local Area of Benue State, and killed two Catholic priests and 17 parishioners.

Recall that the Church attack came barely four days after the murder of 10 persons by the suspected herdsmen in neighbouring Guma Local Area.
