Deborah Shior, a displaced woman with three children said life became miserable for her after Fulani herdsmen attacked her village in Nigeria. According to Deborah, the Fulani herdsmen became furious when Benue State Government passed the anti-open grazing bill. They started attacking and killing people. She said the attack started on 1 January 2018 at midnight while they were sleeping. The herdsmen started killing people. While they were trying to escape her husband was murdered, but she miraculously escaped with her three children. Since then, she has been living in the camp battling with hunger. All their belongings were destroyed by fire during the attack.
