The crisis between Fulani herdsmen and Amla community in Otukpo Local Government Area of Benue State has rendered more than 450 persons homeless.
Chairman of Otukpo Local Government Council, Dr. Innocent Onuh, while conducting newsmen round the displaced peoples' camp yesterday, lamented that last Sunday clash left many persons stranded.
He appealed to the federal and state government as well as individuals to assist the displaced persons who are now taking refuge at the Islamiya primary school in Otukpo town.
According to him, the situation is beyond the local government council and will require external assistance.
Onuh, while donating relief items to the affected victims assured them of government's support just as he sued for peace among the aggrieved party.
Earlier, the Hardo of Fulanis in Otukpo, Alhaji Isah Sule, who lost his 15-year-old son to the crisis, said he has taken the incident as the will of God.
