Latest News No Comments on 2015 elections in Benue will be bloody unless the illegal arms in circulation are withdrawn- DSS

The Department of State Security (DSS) in Benue State has said that
the forthcoming elections in the state would be bloody unless the
illegal arms in circulation are withdrawn.

According
to the DSS, the quantity of firearms in circulation in the state which has
had a number of farmer-herder clashes recently, is scary and is
dangerous to the 2015 elections.
 
Deputy
Director of the Service, Frank Obi, who spoke during a meeting organized by
the National Orientation Agency (NOA) in Makurdi, said there is a need
to address the issue to ensure a peaceful election next year.
“Nobody
is worried about retrieving them. The arms are mostly in the possession
of youths and must be totally mopped up in-order for next year’s
elections not to be turned into a battle field.” he said.
