A source who witnessed the clash, Mohammed Bala said the cause was unknown.

He however claimed he saw three people dead before fleeing for his life.

Meanwhile, a report from a United Kingdom-based organisation has indicted some governors and the opposition party in Nigeria over fueling the crisis between herdsmen and farmers across Nigeria.

The report by the Bridge Centre said there are possibilities that chieftains of the opposition especially the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) are supporting killers in their desperation to get at the government of the All Progressives Congress (APC).

The report also claimed that this desperation may be the reason why many of the killings occur in communities that did not vote for PDP in the 2015 general elections.

The centre in its report cited the case of one “Gana” of Benue state, who was reportedly linked to an ex-PDP governor who ruled between 2007 and 2015.

The report said: “Gana has been identified to be allegedly responsible for scores of deaths, including many that were initially attributed to herdsmen. Ortom is now formally back in the PDP."

Also, head of research and documentation of the Bridge Centre, Elizabeth Robertson, called on the United Nations Security Council to intervene in the ongoing conflict in Nigeria.
