Meanwhile Fulani interest group secretary,Muhammed Husseini has alleged that the number of dead where up to 30 and not the alleged 24.
He went further and accussed the FG, saying they are responsible for the killings and revealed that his group will take the FG to court.

Keana Local Government Area Chairman  Haruna Oshegba, also confirmed the killings and even revealed that about eight bodies were kept at the Specialist Hospital, Lafia.
He said: “There is crisis in my council and it is a military operation but I don’t know the details. I’m trying to piece information together to know exactly what happened,” he said.
