Suspected herdsmen kill police officer, one other in Benue

Two persons including a policeman have been killed by suspected herdsmen in the troubled Guma local government area of Benue State.

Guma and Logo council areas had been under severe attacks of herdsmen since the new year.

The incident was said to have occurred between Wednesday and early hour of Thursday.


Efforts to get the response of the police spokesman, ASP, Moses Yamu were not successful as he did not pick his phone at the time of filing this report.

Benue State Governor, Samuel Ortom, however, confirmed this when he received in audience former Governor of Kano State, Senator Rabiu Kwankwaso who paid him a condolence visit.
