The Commissioner of Police in Benue, Mr Fatai Owoseni, who briefed reporters hours later, said about 30 assailants, whose targets were the priests and the venue of a burial ceremony, invaded the community.

"The herdsmen burnt almost 50 houses during the attack and sacked the entire community".

"I find it unexplainable that some group of gunmen should hold a state to ransom since January, killing and maiming citizens and destroying their houses and the security operatives appear helpless".

"A government that is not concerned about the killing of 18 Catholic worhipers, including two priests but running after perceived political opponents will surely come to an inglorious end one day".

"Christians are to carry placards with different inscriptions meant to address issues about sustained killings, attacks and destruction of their property in Nigeria", the reverend said. "So far we have recovered three bodies in my village and everyone has fled the village because we don't have even a Police post in the village".

"It was like a war situation in Tse-Ali, the sound of gunshots were coming from every direction".

Persecution watchdog groups, such as Open Doors USA and International Christian Concern, have warned that although the Fulani conflict is often characterized as one over land and cattle grazing rights, Christians have been deliberately targeted and killed en masse. The Jihadist conquest is also created to take over the Southwest where roughly half of the population or more are members of the Christian faith and other non Muslims.

"You know that several communities were affected in the attack and he is trying to get to the affected places which is obviously not easy", he added.
