The Governor of Benue State, Rev Fr Dr. Hyacinth Iormem Alia condemns in strong terms the unprovoked attack on Ukum Local Government Area of Benue State.

Scores of people have been reportedly killed in cold blood at Akpuuna village in Mbaterem, Ukum LGA by armed men suspected to be hoodlums.

Reacting to the development, Governor Hyacinth Alia says it’s disappointing and quite disheartening to receive the news that innocent and law-abiding citizens have been attacked and killed in cold blood for a no cause.

He expresses total displeasure over what he describes as a heinous crime and a grave sin against God and mankind, and directs security agents to arrest those behind the unlawful act and bring them to book.

The Governor sends his words of condolence to those whose loved ones were killed in the attack and prays God to comfort them

While assuring of swift reaction from the Government, Fr. Alia calls for calm and advises the people of Sankera to assist security agencies with useful information that will help quell insecurity in the area.
