Police Sergeant’s son lynched in Benue over suspected robbery

A 22-year-old son of a retired Police Sergeant, Terfa Adim, of Mbaketsa  Council Ward of Shangev-ya district, Kwande Local Government Area of Benue State,  has been  burnt to death by an irate mob over suspected armed robbery. The incident happened weekend.

It was reliably gathered from an eyewitness that the deceased, alongside two other members of the gang, had on Sunday, robbed one Michael Hwande of Mbakertsa, of the same district, after firing several gun shots into the air to scare residents before breaking into the house of their victim.

He said: “But as God would have it, the leader of the gang,Terfa, who mounted guard at the door with a gun while the others were carrying out the operation, was attacked by a courageous neigbour who disarmed him with a knife.

“Sensing danger the two others took to their heels and escaped before members of the vigilante group in the area would arrive the scene.”
