The Benue Prisons Service on Monday

confirmed that herdsmen invaded its Jato-

Aka Farm Centre and killed an inmate,

one Tersoo Agidi.



ASP Stephen Nwanchor, Public Relations

Officer, Benue Prisons Service, told the

News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Makurdi

that the incident took place on Saturday at

the farm centre.



Nwanchor said that the invasion was not a

failed jail break attempt.



"This is a new farm centre established in

January, 2017. The herdsmen invaded the

place, destroyed property, shot and killed

one Tersoo Agidi, an inmate.



"We have evacuated all the remaining

inmates from the farm centre to Gboko,

pending the outcome of the investigation.

"We are not taking anything for granted.

My Controller of Prison is on top of the

issue, and all relevant security operatives

in the state have been notified,"

Nwanchor said.



The PRO said the service was investigating

the invasion to ascertain the remote

cause, noting that no arrest had been

made so far.



Nwanchor said the service had tightened

security in and around all its facilities in

the state, assuring that there was no

cause for alarm.



Herdsmen attack had been on increase in

the last twelve months especially in the

North central states.
