Gunmen Ambush Police Team In Benue: 1 Officer Killed, 11 Missing

At least one Nigerian police officer was killed and 11 others missing after gunmen opened fire on them in Benue Sunday night.

The slain officer was riding with his colleague from Anyibe to Ayilamo, both in Logo Local Government Area, when gunmen cornered them around 6:00 p.m.

Some officers who responded to the attack tried to go after the killers, only to run into a waiting ambush, locals said.

“Eleven officers are missing this night,” a resident told correspondent from Logo LGA. “These killers should be immediately declared a terrorist group now.”

At least one police truck was set alight, locals said.

Another resident said the remains of the officer had been deposited at a local government hospital in Ayilamo.
