2-year-old young girl, Msurshima Iorshie, has been shot in her vagina by Fulani herders who went after Tiortyu people group in Tarka Local Government Area of Benue state.

Msurshima Iorshie, who is as of now fighting for her life at the Benue State University Teaching Hospital, BSUTH, was shot during the incident that occurred on Monday April 11, that left 15 people including ladies and kids dead while a few others supported blade cuts and shot injuries.

Addressing Vanguard, the 25-year-old mother of the kid, Mrs. Faith Iorshie said that her girl was being taken care of by her granddad when the equipped herders attacked the local area.

“l left Msurshima in custody of her grandfather, that is my husband’s father, and went to farm with my husband in a neighbouring community where we spend few days in the farm because we have a small residence in the farm,” she narrated.

“At the farm we were alerted that night that armed herdsmen were moving towards our community. We ran back only to discover that they had already attacked our village. They were said to be chasing and shooting at anybody they saw,”

“My grandfather had made attempt to escape with my daughter and others but he was shot dead. My daughter that he tried to escape with was also shot her on her vagina.

“After the armed herders retreated, one of my brothers who went in search of our family members saw her where she laid motionless looking as if she was dead but it was discovered that she was still breathing. But at that time our grandfather was already dead.

“We hurriedly carried her to a hospital in Wannune, the Local Government Headquarter for treatment. They revived her and we were immediately transferred to the Teaching Hospital on the orders of the state government for better treatment.”

The devastated mother who could not hold back tears said “we have never had anything to do with Fulani herders. They came from Guma area where they have been attacking and killing people. They came shooting our people and chasing us away from our ancestral homes.

“I do not know the sin my innocent daughter committed that they shot her like an animal. We thank God that she is still alive but we do not know what becomes of her given where she was shot. I’m begging people to come and help me because I do not know what to do with her condition.”

Meanwhile one of the health personnel at the paediatric ward who spoke on condition of anonymity told Vanguard that the two year old girl was responding to treatment but noted that the little girl would require correctional surgery on her vagina.

“It is a miracle that the little girl is still alive, but we must commend Governor Samuel Ortom for ordering immediate evacuation of all the injured to the BSUTH where they are receiving expert attention which has contributed to the survival of the seriously injured victims,” he said.
