Troops Kill Two Armed Herdsmen In Benue

Nigerian Troops of  Operation Whirl Stroke, OPWS, in a gun duel at Gyungwu Amua Village in Guma local government area of Benue State, gunned down two armed militia herdsmen after they engaged troops in a gun battle.

While narrating the incident, a native, Hedejuma Abur, said the suspected herdsmen invaded the community on Tuesday night through the neighbouring Nasarawa State.

Abur added that the prompt intervention of the troops patrolling the area saved the community as they were repelled and in the process killed two of the militia herdsmen.

He said;

The incident occurred around 7.00 pm when the militia herdsmen attacked our village, Gyungwu Amua and one of the community leaders had to inform the soldiers who were on patrol of the area.

In a jiffy, they responded and pursued them into the bush but we heard persistent gunshots which indicated that the herdsmen engaged the soldiers.

But by the time the soldiers returned and drove through our village, they had a stopover which elicited rowdy jubilation by the villagers.

l saw their dead bodies because the army brought them back into the village with the AK 47 riffle and 20 round of ammunition.

I want to really commend OPWS  troops in Benue State for the effort they are putting in place to ensure that the security situation in Guma local government area of the state is brought under control. I must say they have done so much for us in Benue
