Director General of Suswam Campaign Organisation Arrested by Police

The Director General of former governor Gabriel Suswam in the last Benue North-East Senatorial election Terfa Atii has been arrested by the Zone 4 Police Headquarters, Makurdi in a case of culpable homicide following an incident that led to the death of a teenage 14-year-old girl on the Election Day.

Narrating the incident to The Guardian, counsel to the family of the victim, Samuel Shior stated that Atii was alleged to have on April 11, 2015 sent some thugs to snatch ballot boxes at a polling unit in Ushongo town. 

The thugs, who met resistance from the people, thus began to shoot randomly and a stray bullet hit a 14-year-old girl Aguji Terkumbur, who was washing clothes in a nearby house. She was rushed to Torr Medical Centre where she later passed on.
