13 People Killed in Benue As Armed Gang Attack Senga Village in Kastina Ala LG


At least 13 people have been reportedly killed at Senga village in Kastina Ala local government area of Benue State following an attack by deadly armed robbery gang and the locals who had mobilised to repel them.

Spokesman of the Benue Police command ASP. Moses Joel Yamu alleged that a five man gang belonging to the notorious criminal "Ghana" who was declared wanted with N5 million reward placed on him had on Wednesday went to rob at Senga village, an interior part of Katsina Ala LGA.

Yamu said that an irate mob had lynched two of the robbers, one of which was later identified as "Chemical" (not real name) and a lady harbouring them were killed while the other three escaped to Gbishe village, where Ghana hailed from and mobilized for reprisal.

According to the police spokesman, the robbers on return for reprisal could not gain access to Senga because the youths of the village had mobilized to protect their area.

He explained further that the robbers anchored at a neighbouring Kenvenger village, which was next to Senga, from where they shot and killed on the spot ten people including one Terseer Akaya, a driver from Katsina-Ala who went to convey farm produce.

Yamu added that an eight month old baby, eight year old child with their mothers and six others were killed in the process while five other persons injured were rushed to the hospital and are receiving medical attention at NKST hospital at Kera in Katsina-Ala LGA.

The police spokesman has appealed for calm, saying that security operatives have been deployed to patrol the area to prevent further breach of peace.
