5 Killed As Okpoga, Benue Deputy Speaker’s Hometown Boils

There is an ongoing war between Okpoga, the country home of Benue State Deputy Speaker, James Okefe and Inleng, a neighboring town.



DAILY POST gathered that the fight has claimed no fewer than five lives.

An insider hinted our reporter on Monday that problem started few months ago when a man, who is believed to be a member of an armed robbery gang from Inleng, a neibouring village, was arrested and killed by vigilante group from Okpoga.


It was gathered that his group, few days later traced one of the vigilante members to Okpoga and strangled him to death and burnt his body.

“The same suspected robbers again came to the community with motorcycle and the vigilante members identified them and followed them to a nearby village where fight broke out between them.

“The vigilante guys overpowered them after their bullets exhausted. They arrested them, cut off their manhoods and set them ablaze,” the source said.

It was gathered that total war broke out after the boys from Inleng returned to the community and killed two boys from the community in reprisal.
