Herdsmen invade Benue prison, kill inmate

The Benue Prisons Service yesterday confirmed that herdsmen invaded its Jato-Aka Farm Centre and killed an inmate, one Tersoo Agidi.

Public Relations Officer, Benue Prisons Service, ASP Stephen Nwanchor, told newsmen in Makurdi that the incident took place on Saturday
 at the farm centre.
Nwanchor said that the inva­sion was not a failed jail break attempt.
“This is a new farm centre es­tablished in January, 2017. The herdsmen invaded the place, de­stroyed
property, shot and killed one Tersoo Agidi, an inmate.
“We have evacuated all the re­maining inmates from the farm centre to Gboko, pending the outcome of the investigation.
“We are not taking anything for granted. My Controller of Prisons is on top of the issue, and all relevant security operatives in the state have been notified,” Nw­anchor said.
