Tension As Community Comes Under Heavy Attack by Kidnappers, Gunmen

It was late in the evening of Friday, June 3, 2022, when our reporter arrived at Oho-Ogbo in Owukpa, Ogbadibo Local Government Area of Benue state.

The usual hustle and bustle had gone quiet. There was pin-drop silence. Shops had closed for the night and the only sign of life noticed in the community was the occasional barking of dogs and the chit-chats of the birds.

Sadly, one Mr Okpe Augustine who was rushing a cousin to St. Mary’s hospital in Okpoga told our correspondent that the once peaceful Owukpa has turned into a den of kidnapping and bandits allegedly perpetrated by herdsmen.

“Today is a sad day for us in this community. I’m rushing to Okpoga to save the life of my cousin who was shot in the stomach by the kidnappers that attacked St. Mary’s Catholic Church Aho-Owukpa. The gunshot hit his stomach and has affected his intestine.”
