Benue: Troops clampdown on 40 suspected cultists

Troops of Operation Whirl Stroke (OPWS) in Benue State have clampdown on at least 40 suspected cultists during the recent yuletide.
Force Commander of OPWS, Major General, Adeyemi Yekini, made the disclosure in an interview to newsmen at the weekend.
He added that the suspects were handed over to the police for the law to take its course.
Yekini also disclosed that his troops few days ago recovered two weapons at Ikpayongo town in Gwer East local government area of the state.
The force commander noted that there had been relative peace in the state since the last one month, stressing that the OPWS has continuously made new deployments of troops to flashpoint in order to curtail any threat to security.
“Just two days ago (Thursday) we made new deployments of troops to some areas just to ensure that every area is secured. You can see that for sometime now there has been relative peace in the state.
“This we will continue to do until there is peace everywhere. We are not promising 100 percent peace because it is only God that can give that. But we will continue to try our best to ensure that people are safe in their homes,” Yekini posited.
