Four policemen killed as gunmen attack Benue community

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
DAILY POST on Monday that the gunmen invaded the community at about
6pm 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.
