Many people are reported killed in a fresh conflict between Shitile and Ikyulav tyev communities of Katsina-Ala Local Government Area in Benue State.

The clash heightened at the wee-hours of Saturday after fierce-looking and gun-wielding men attack each other.

Reports reaching Apex News said it might a reprisal as gunmen attacked a wake-keep around the area recently.

However, Mrs Virginia Kpindi, Chairman of the Katsina-Ala Local Government Area, said in Makurdi that, at least three persons were killed and those injured are receiving treatment in a hospital.
