Herdsmen kill two returning from Catholic priests’ burial in Benue

Persons suspected to be Fulani herdsmen have killed two people along the Naka/Makurdi Road.

The incident was said to have occurred on Tuesday while the deceased were returning from the burial of the Catholic priests and 17 parishioners killed by herdsmen earlier in the week.

The deceased, who were said to be riding on a motorcycle, were said to have been ambushed by the herdsmen who reportedly slaughtered them.

Naka/Makurdi road, which is a federal road, has been abandoned for a long time due to the activities of herdsmen along the federal highway.

A native who spoke to our correspondent said, “The two men were returning from the burial of the Catholic priests and the parishioners when they were attacked by herdsmen.

“Naka/Makurdi highway has been abandoned since herdsmen invaded Naka a few weeks ago. Anyone coming to Makurdi from Naka has to pass through the major road to Taraku, making the journey of 30 minutes’ drive to result in two and a half hours’ journey.

“I think the deceased just decided to take the route; unfortunately, they were killed,” the local said.

Efforts to get the state Police public relations officer, ASP, Moses Yamu, were not successful, as he did not respond to his call.

The state governor, Samuel Ortom, however confirmed this while receiving in audience on Thursday, the Nobel laureate, Prof. Wole Soyinka.

“Killing is still ongoing. Just on Tuesday, two people returning from the burial were killed along Naka/Makurdi road,” Ortom told his visitor.

It is quite shockingly open-handed with you to deliver freely all that numerous people could have marketed for an electronic book to help make some profit on their own, chiefly seeing that you could have done it if you decided. Those strategies additionally worked like the great way to understand that someone else have the identical fervor really like my own to know lots more with respect to this condition. I know there are lots of more fun times ahead for many who see your blog post.

    Hip dysplasia is not uncommon in many dog breeds, particularly the larger breeds. It is a deformity of the of the hip joint so the bone and socket do not fit snug. It causes rubbing and degeneration of the bone, inflamation and damage to surounding cartalidge. The condition usually leads to arthritus as the bone is grinded down new mishapen bone grows back causing pain. The good news about Canine Hip Dysplasia is that most cases can be treated to help eliminate or decrease pain, allowing fairly normal levels of activity. Very few dogs today have to be put to sleep to alleviate suffering. There are always choices to be made, but the vast majority of affected animals can live quite comfortable lives. Depending on how severe the damege is pain medication and anti-inflammatory drugs can be given. Another very good supplement to give is glueclosamine. Eventually though surgery might be necessary. . . I would suggest talking to the shelter about having him examined by a vet of your choice before officially adopting him. If you are willing to spend a little money to consult with a vetranarian you’ll be able to discuss this guy’s prognosis. This way you can know beforehand if his case is mild or severe and what treatment options are reccommended and at what cost. I hope I haven’t scared you away from adopting this dog because it may only be arthritis misdiagnosed or a mild case of hip dysplasia, only a vet can tell you for sure.

    I think that what you posted made a lot of sense. But,
    consider this, what if you added a little information? I am not saying your
    information isn’t good, however what if you added a title to maybe get folk’s
    attention? I mean Herdsmen kill two returning from Catholic
    priests’ burial in Benue – OfofoZone
    is kinda plain. You ought to look at Yahoo’s front page and see how they create post titles to grab viewers
    interested. You might add a related video or a picture or two to get people excited about everything’ve got to say.
    In my opinion, it might make your posts a little bit more interesting.

    Hey there this is kind of of off topic but I was wanting to know if blogs use WYSIWYG editors or if you have to manually
    code with HTML. I’m starting a blog soon but have no coding knowledge so I wanted to get advice
    from someone with experience. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
