Police Arrests 28 Suspects Over Murder Of 10 Herdsmen In Benue


The Benue State Police Command yesterday arrested 28 suspects at a Makurdi Magistrate court over their alleged involvement in last Saturday’s gruesome murder of 10 herders at Yelwata, a border town between Benue and Nasarawa states on the Makurdi-Lafia highway.

The victims were traveling from Awe in Nasarawa State for a wedding but their vehicle broke down in the town when the hoodlums allegedly pounced on them and killed them in cold blood.

Counsel to the complainants, Mr. Tijuana Ahmed appealed to Benue State Police command to urgently conclude investigation into the matter to allow timely determination of the matter which was adjourned to April 24 for commencement of definite hearing.

Confirming the arraignment, Commissioner of Police in Benue State, Fatai Owoseni stated that it would serve as deterrent to anyone or group of persons who would contemplate taking the laws into their hands.

Meanwhile, the Benue state governor, Samuel Ortom has condemned the attacks on passengers by hoodlums near Yelwata, along Lafia-Makurdi road, even as he commended the Police for switfly arresting some of the suspects for prosecution.
