Benue State Commissioner for Youth and Sports, Mr Lawrence Okpe Onoja Jnr escaped death earlier yesterday when unknown gunmen disrupted the All Progressives Congress (APC) zoning meeting at Idekpa in Ohimini Local Government of the state.
According to eye witnesses, the meeting was about to begin when irate youths supposedly dissatisfied barricaded the entrance and started shooting sporadically.
” Matter took a dark turn when the youths started shooting sporadically into the air and throwing stones at the Benue links bus that conveyed us.
” But for the Chairman of the committee who took an instant decision and asked the driver to move away from Ohimini which he did, we would all be dead” said the APC Director of Publicity, Mr Ikwulono Anthony who also present at the scene.
