However, residents of the affected community insist that the police were economical with the truth as over 14 persons were massacred by the rampaging herdsmmen.
Benue state police spokesman Moses Yamu said the farmers were attacked earlier in the week on their way to their farms near the border with Taraba state.
He faulted the media for reporting that over 14 persons were killed in the latest attack.
However, findings by DAILY POST show that no fewer than 14 persons were killed while several others were injured and missing.
A resident of the area who gave his name as Tar told our reporter on phone that the police lied in their statement that only one person died.
Speaking further, the resident said over 7 persons have been missing since the village was raided.
