Armed Loyalists of late militia leader, Terwase Agwaza also known as Gana, in military camouflage killed three persons after they invaded Dyom village near Senga community in Katsina-Ala Local Government Area of Benue State.
It was also gathered that two of the three armed men razed several houses in the community.
They were apprehended by the men of the joint security operation in the state, codenamed Operation Whirl Stroke, OPW, and weapons were recovered from them.
The arrest was confirmed in a statement on sunday by the Special Adviser to the Governor on Security, Col. Paul Hembe (retd.).
He said the timely intervention of the OPWS personnel save what would have been a major bloodbath in the community.
“These were armed men in military camouflage said to be loyalists of the late Gana. They stormed the area, killed three persons and also burnt down houses in the community.
“Luckily while this was going on, information reached personnel of Operation Whirl Stroke who stormed the area, apprehended two of the armed men and also recovered their weapons which included live ammunition and an AK-47 rifle including a locally-made gun.”
