Herdsmen Kill Two Police Officers In Benue

Suspected herdsmen on Sunday attacked Tse Orogbo in Nyiev Council Ward, Guma LGA of Benue State, killing two police officers in a gun duel.

The attackers reportedly engaged policemen in a gun duel near one L.G.A primary School before killing two of the officers.

A resident told Daily Post that the herdsmen had attempted to disrupt a church service before the mobile policemen foiled their attack.

This comes 24 hours before the official visit of President Muhammadu Buhari to the state.

The police command in Benue is yet to confirm the attack.
