Azubuike_Ihejirika_167002122No fewer than seven persons have been reported missing yesterday in Moon locality of Kwande Local Government Area of Benue State after an alleged military invasion.

Properties worth several million of naira were also said to have been destroyed in the attack which grinded commercial activities in the rural setting to a halt.

A victim of the attack, Dewua Mfaityo, said the soldiers targeted the Imande-Debam market day to unleash terror on the unarmed locals.

He said five trucks loaded with heavily armed military men stormed the market at the height of trading activities on the day causing commotion as people ran for dear life.

“The military men brutalised any one in sight. When they finished from the market, they proceeded to peoples’ houses where they broke in and carted away whatever they wanted and left.”

A community leader in the area, Abo Utah, said seven people so far have been missing since the unfortunate incident occurred on Monday afternoon in the area.

“We are wondering whether they have been taken hostage by the soldiers, hiding or killed,” Utah said.

When contacted, spokesman of the Nigeria School of Military Engineering (NASME), Makurdi Col. Umar said he was not aware of the matter.
