Despite the huge damage already meted on Benue residents, herdsmen are still not done yet.
10 herdsmen were arrested while destroying farmlands in Benue state.
According to the Director, Army Public Relations, Brig.Gen. Texas Chukwu, troops deployed to Yelwata under the ongoing Exercise Ayem Akpatuma (Cat Race) caught the herdsmen destroying farmland at Tse-Tigir and Tse-Ndugh villages of Benue.
“While in the act of destroying the farmland, the herdsmen sighted the aggressive troops and fled into the bush.
“The determined troops pursued and arrest them.
“Items recovered from them are five motorcycles, two machetes, assorted charms and N120,000,” he said.
Chukwu said the suspects and the items were handed over to the Police for investigation.
The spokesman said the Army was determined to fish out criminals and recover weapons they use in killing innocent citizens.
He appealed to the people to cooperate with the troops.
