No fewer than four policemen serving with the Benue state command have been killed when suspected gunmen attacked Anyibe community in Logo LGA of the state.
The incident took place on Sunday night. Moses Yamu, the Police Public Relations Officer, PPRO, in Benue told reporters on Monday that the gunmen invaded the community at about 6 pm on Sunday.
He said, “Sadly, at the moment, four casualties have been suffered by the Police. “Additional reinforcement (including the Air Asset of the Police) deployed by the Inspector General of Police is in pursuit of the murderous gang. “They shall definitely be apprehended with their weapons of destruction and made to face the full wrath of the law.”
The attack came barely 24 hours after a police officer was killed when some boys believed to be working for wanted criminal Terwase Akwaza, otherwise known as Ghana, attacked Tse Ikyeen village in Ukum LGA of Benue State. The attackers also set a patrol van on fire.
