In lafia, Fulani insurgents numbering 10 were brought to the Dalhatu Araf Specialist Hospital, DASH, Lafia the state capital by a police pickup van and deposited at the mortuary while about 20 others were deposited at the general hospital Keana as well as several others still in the bush.
Sources said that the military launched an offensive on the terrorists while acting on a tipoff about their hideouts in Maraba Giza and Tse-Azer where they have taken over the ancestral home of the Tivs in the area.
It also emerged that the Keana general hospital could no longer contain the number of dead bodies hence the conveyance of the remaining ones to Lafia.
