Suspected Fulani herdsmen on Friday shot and killed five persons, including an undergraduate of Edo State University, Collins Ojierakhi, in two different areas of Edo State.
The herdsmen attacked and killed Collins and two others as he and some friends were on their way from Ueomi to Ugboha when they were shot at.
In Odiguete, another town in the state, a separate band of Fulani by rdsmen killed two other people.
There was no confirmation from the police on the incidents.
Fulani herdsmen have been a major security challenge in recent years as they appear to have overwhelmed Nigeria’s security agencies.
