Soldiers Burn Houses In Naka, Benue Community by nwakibie3(m): 4:57pm On Apr 19, 2018
Some persons suspected to be Nigerian soldiers stormed a community in Benue State and set houses ablaze, an official has told PREMIUM TIMES.

They stormed Naka, the seat of Gwer West Local Government Area, at about 11:00 a.m. and began burning houses to the apprehension of residents, Francis Ayagah, chairman of the local government told PREMIUM TIMES by telephone Thursday afternoon.

Details of the incident were still murky as at 2:48 p.m., and Mr Ayagah could not immediately confirm casualty figures, if there were any.

But he said the ‘soldiers’ were on a reprisal attack over the killing of one of their colleagues near the community on Wednesday.

“A soldier was killed by hoodlums yesterday, but I met with the brigade commander around 4:30 a.m. today,” Mr Ayagah said of the possible motive of the arsonists. “He gave me a list of suspects and we arrested five of them overnight. It was while we trying to take them to the brigade that soldiers stormed the town and started burning houses.”

“A whole part of the town has been completely burnt down and we’re appealing for help and understanding from the soldiers,” he added.

The troops were said to have spent over two hours burning down properties in Naka, which is about 45 kilometres from Makurdi, the state capital. Mr Ayagah said homes of citizens were mostly affected rather than those of the suspected killers of the slain soldier.

Nigerian Army spokesperson, Texas Chukwu, and Defence spokesperson, John Agim, told PREMIUM TIMES no report had been received about the incident.

The Nigerian Army has ended ‘Exercise Ayem Akpatuma‘ in which troops were drafted to combat gunmen who have killed hundreds of villagers in the state since January. Gwer West was attacked a little over a week ago with over 25 people reportedly killed.

The ‘soldiers’ on rampage today are believed to be amongst those embedded with mobile police officers in ‘Operation Zenda’.

Some residents of the community have shared a picture of the arson on social media, although its authenticity has not been independently verified by PREMIUM TIMES.

Fulanis have killed over 50 Nigerian soldiers and police men this year yet not a single reprisal from the military but one of them is killed near a tiv town and the Army immediately goes on reprisal not minding that the killing might even have been done by Fulanis

I just can't tell what is wrong in Nigeria.


Overlooking Fulani killing this days by our security men is too sad.

So if Army dey burn houses in Benue, Police are no where to be found for the protection of the people. So who should the people look up to? Buhari's failure is 1st class.

As usual silence will greet this atrocity

I hope Mr Mohammed Buhari will not tell us that these armies are from Libya

If the Nigerian Army that is suppose to protect lives and properties are the ones destroying it, then who do we turn to

Is there still hope for Nigerians under this leadership

Buhari, you might be a disciple of adolf hitler but Nigerians will resist you till the end!

You know why? Because, most stories of fulani killing this and that are not true. There are so many communal clashes here and there but blamed on fulani herdsmen. Its same as Biafra... lots of stories of Soldiers killing and slaughtering Biafra people here and there. Keep the lies coming, use Igberetv, Biafra Radio all, keep the propaganda coming, the World know you guys to be propagandist and full of lies that is why no one takes you serious. BTW, someone said they saw Nnamdi Kanu in Burkina Faso, i thought Ivory Coast or Cote D'ivoire is the getaway country... why una change am to Burkina faso and you did not tell us.... .....dia ris God oh.

The owners of Nigerian running the country how they deem fit. The army, the fg and some governors understand the cause here and they are quiet. If Dan Fodio started from 0 to 100, how then is succeeding difficult when they are 100? If he succeeded when he had nothing, no military or man tool, how is succeeding now difficult when there is a military support base and willing human tools?

Soldiers that should be protecting our territories are now helping Buhari's kinsmen in reducing Benue population.
