Aside Benue State, insecurity has been the order of the day in most States of the country. Presently, no one can confidently state those who are directly involved in the attacks. The recent of them all are the ones that took place in the Eastern part of the country, which led to setting ablaze of a Prison facility after the inmates have been set free.

Following the attempt on the life of Benue State Governor, it became necessary to deploy some Army personnel to the State , so as to cover any security loopholes that may have given the perpetuators access to the State.

Sadly, some of the Army personnel sent to the State for peacekeeping became unaccounted for. After much search and military strategies, the missing personnel were found but not alive. 11 of them have been confirmed dead , courtesy of some unidentified gunmen.
