Major Gen. Ugbo And 7 Others Die In Benue Community Clash

No fewer that eight persons, including one Major General Lawrence Ugbo have been killed and several others injured in Ugboju district, Otukpo LGA of Benue State. The incident, which broke out Wednesday morning has rendered many persons homeless.

A resident has said that war broke out in the community after some boys from Ugboju allegedly attacked a group of persons loyal to a former chairman of Otukpo.

It was gathered that the ex-LG boss was in the village with his loyalists when another group believed to be his rival launched an attack on them, injuring many persons. In reprisal, the politician went back and teamed up with his boys who stormed the community, killing anybody on sight.

They reportedly killed a retired Major General Lawrence Ugbo and cremated his corpse.

The chairman of Otukpo LG, Hon. George Alli confirmed that several persons lost thier lives. He, however, faulted the claims in some quaters that the clash was political.

      I was having a chat with my elder brother today that only God knows what will happen to Nigeria during her independent being Oct 1.

      I was like with all these agitations going on in the country Godforbid anything happens from now till October 1st, how do we get to Akwaibom from Abuja? which road do we go thru? He was like we will go through Nassarawa then connect via Cross river state to Akwaibom. Enugu road will be a no go area..
