 An eyewitness said “It all started like a joke, when some young men were initially throwing fireworks at one another but within a short time, they pulled out gun and it became a serious affair.

“They shot at each other in the name of belonging to rival cult groups and people were running up and down all over the town for safety over fear of being hit by stray bullet.”
 The eyewitness added that “It took the intervention of the Police, who drafted men into Otukpo to check further spread of the crisis, but before then, several persons had been killed while others sustained bullet injuries.”



 According to the Benue State Police Public Relations officer, PPRO, Assistant Superintendent, ASP, Moses Yamu, the Police confirmed three deaths.
 He said they were “three deaths, three with gunshot wounds, eight arrested and four locally made pistols recovered.”
