On Saturday, a Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) youth leader in Benue State was assassinated in Asase 1, a North-Bank suburb of Makurdi.
He was assassinated in the morning by unidentified assailants.
According to witnesses, the deceased, whose name was just provided as Bem, was slain by shooters at 8 a.m.
The deceased was alleged to be a youth leader of Agan ward in the state’s Makurdi local government area.
According to a witness, the region is infamous for a variety of illicit operations.
“There aren’t many days when you don’t hear of a killing in various sections of Northbank.” Either the cultists are fighting among themselves, or criminals are dispossessing victims and murdering them.
“In this location, several innocent lives have been lost.” “This young man, too, was killed by a gunshot this morning, but I can’t identify who killed him,” the witness stated.
When contacted, the Benue Police Spokesperson, SP. Catherine Anene, stated that she had not received any reports of the event.
