Herdsmen abduct suspended Benue Council Chair

The suspended Council Chairman of Okpokwu Local Government Area, LGA, of Benue State, Mrs. Amina Audu and her driver have been kidnapped by suspected armed herdsmen. 

It was gathered that Audu was ambushed by the armed men on Monday along the Naka-Makurdi at Tyolaha Ahume village. 

The source explained that the private vehicle of the Council Chairman was heading towards Naka when it was shot at by the armed men who laid wait in the bush. 

According to him, "The incident happened this morning close to Tyolaha Ahume village along Naka-Makurdi road when armed herdsmen ambushed a moving car and shot at it until it stopped. 

"The gunmen immediately swooped on the female occupant and the driver and ran into the bush with them, abandoning their car. 

"We didn't know the woman was the suspended Chairman of Okpokwu LGA until this evening when the story started going round." 

Meanwhile another suspended Chairman, James Oche of Ado LGA confirmed the development. He said: "It is true, I learnt she was kidnapped alongside her driver and they (kidnappers) are yet to contact anyone.
