A Benue state parliamentarian from the area, Audu Sule, gave a death toll of about 50 from the attack.

“Around 50 people were killed in Egba village in my constituency in an early morning attack. The gunmen came in large numbers, all armed with AK47 rifles,” he told AFP.

He also said women and children were among those killed.

Hundreds of people have been killed in attacks and reprisal attacks between farmers and ethnic Fulani herdsmen in the past few years in the state.
