The Benue Police Command said gunmen attacked and killed four mourners and injured one at Imande Abur village, Mbategh ward of Logo local government area.

In a statement on Sunday in Makurdi by the police command spokesperson, Catherine Anene, three gunmen attacked the mourners on Saturday at a wake “and shot sporadically at mourners who were assembled at a funeral ceremony.”

Ms Anene said the “Police teams within the area swiftly moved to the area but the suspects took to their heels on sighting the police.

“Five persons sustained gunshot injuries and were rushed to hospital for treatment but unfortunately four of them lost their lives while receiving treatment.”

The Command further commiserated with families of the victims and assured that justice would definitely be served as detectives are already on the trail of the suspects.
