An attack on an internally displaced people (IDP) camp in Benue State, Nigeria, believed to have been carried out by suspected Fulani militants on Good Friday has left at least 32 dead.
The attack is believed to have been carried out by suspected Fulani militants, who invaded the camp and began slaughtering people as they slept.
Many of the victims were reported to be Christians, women and children, and the attack has caused widespread shock and horror across the region.
According to the chairman of the camp, the attack took place at around 9pm on Friday, April 7, with the militants shooting and slaughtering people as they slept.
The incident has left many in a state of shock and grief, and has been strongly condemned by local authorities.
The IDP camp which was home to around 30,000 people, most of whom are Christians who have fled their villages due to ongoing attacks by Fulani militants, was believed to be safe prior to the attack.
The attack has sent shockwaves across the country, with many calling for urgent action to be taken to protect vulnerable communities in Nigeria.
