Benue Police arrest 4 herdsmen for attempted rape

Four suspected herdsmen have been arrested by the Benue State Police Command over alleged attempt to rape two women— Doosul Nambo and Ladi Mhbahme— in Guma Local Government Area of the state.

The state’s Police Public Relations Officer, ASP Moses Yamu, who disclosed this yesterday in Makurdi, said the herdsmen also killed one Apesuu Uhula, who came to the rescue of the women.

Yamu named the suspected herdsmen as Ibrahim Muhammadu, Abubakar Ahmadu, Ibrahim Fulani and Adamu Bature, adding that they were arrested along with their cows.

He said the herdsmen were attempting to rape Nambo and Mhbahme both of Isho Village in Guma council when they were arrested, following security tip-off.

His words: “One Apesuu Uhula, who came to their rescue, was shot dead. The Police moved immediately to the scene; while at the scene, some herdsmen were seen trying to convey their cow in a canoe and attempted to flee, when they sighted the Police.

“They were eventually rounded up and held in our custody for further investigations.”

It is the first arrest by the Police since the beginning of the full implementation of the Anti-Open Grazing Law in Benue State on November 1.
