Daily Trust gathered that the bandits invaded the village in the evening on Sunday, abducting fifteen villagers, mostly women. 3 killed in Benue ‘cult’ clash A source who spoke in confidence told our correspondent that “The attackers came on motorcycles and shot into the air to scare the villagers”. THISDAY learnt that the gunmen rode on motorcycles into the village and shot indiscriminately into the air to instil fears in the villagers after which they started moving from house to house ransacking the buildings and taking away their valuable properties. He said, “After causing panic, they started moving from house to house, ransacking buildings and taking away their valuable properties, especially food items”. Authorities in the village say no family has been able to establish contact with the gunmen and it remains unclear where the victims were taken to. Another source said the kidnappers were yet to establish communication with the relations of the abductees as at the time of filing this report on the incident. According to THISDAY findings, most of those kidnapped were women after the men had taken to their heels. Efforts to get police confirmation proved abortive as the Niger State Police Command’s Public Relations Officer, DSP Wasiu Abiodun, could not be reached. “The gunmen also went away with many cattle and other household items” the eyewitness told THISDAY.
