The development sparked violence in the area as youths of the community have threatened to set the police station where the officer is attached on fire.

When Newsmen contacted the Benue State Police PPRO, Moses Yamu for comment, he said the command was yet to receive the report.

“We have not gotten the report. I will find out and get back to you,” he said.

The incident is coming barely one week after two ladies were roasted alive for alleged lesbianism in the state.
