Terrorists Kill Monarch’s Son, Abduct Daughter In Nigeria

Terrorists around 2 am on Monday broke into Ikpomolokpo palace in Gege ward of Ado Local Government Area in Benue State, killing the son of the monarch and kidnapping his daughter.
It was gathered that the gunmen stormed the community at the wee hours of Monday and headed to the palace of the clan head where they wreaked havoc.
The villagers said that they heard gunshots severally from the residence of the clan head but could not intervene because they themselves were helpless.
Chairman of Ado LGA, Chief James Oche, confirmed the incident to journalists in Makurdi, saying he received a distress call on the incident.
“Some gunmen at about 2 am today (Monday) entered into the residence of the clan head of Ipomoloko through the fence and asked for the wife of the clan head from the son whose name is Thompson.”
“The young man told them that he did not know the whereabouts of his mother and they shot him dead and they now took the sister away,” he said.
The council chairman added that he immediately alerted troops of Operation Whirl Stroke (OPWS) but before they could get to the palace, the gunmen had escaped into the Atiga forest in the area.
Oche said the troops were already trailing the culprits with the aim of apprehending them and rescuing the abductee.
Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO) in Benue, DSP Catherine Anene, was unreachable as of press time as her telephone line was switched off.
