Gunmen kill couple , as cultists butcher 20-year old boy in Benue

Unknown gunmen at the weekend invaded a village and killed a couple, just as suspected cultists also killed a 20-year-old boy in the North Bank area of the state capital, Makurdi.

Police spokesman in the state, ASP.  Moses Yamu, who confirmed the separate incidences, said a man and his wife were shot dead in Agasha area of Guma Local Government Area, while the young man, Friday Okoh, was killed by suspected cultists.

Yamu said that the killers of the couple set the couple and their home ablaze before the police arrived at the scene to recover empty shell of rifle at the scene in Agasha, a suburb community of  Makurdi metropolis.
He further explained that the mission of the arsonist against the couple could not be immediately ascertained but that the deceased Okoh had been on the wanted list of police on suspicion of cultism.

According to Yamu, it was the father of the late boy who reported to the police that some young men armed with dangerous weapons stormed his residence in North Bank at 2pm on Saturday and shot his son dead.

The PPRO said  investigation into the matter has  commenced in earnest to unravel the killers of the couple and the boy.
