Troops of the Operation Whirl Stroke, OPWS, have arrested two suspects in connection with a recent communal clash between three communities in Benue state.
It was gathered that the communal clash is between Tse Hundu, Tse Yanre and Tse Aku in Mbalom Council Ward of Gwer East Local government area of Benue State.
