unknown gunmen at Titogate,
along Kashim Ibrahim road in
Makurdi, the Benue State capital.
Eyewitnesses told Benue.com.ng that three men were seen surrounding the deceased before they opened fire and shot him in the head.
The victim died instantly while his
killers took advantage of the pandemonium that ensued to mix
up with the crowd and escape. Some residents in the area say the attack might be from a rival cult group as the deceased lived in an area in the state notorious for cult activities.
