Commander ‘Operation Whirl Stroke’ (OPWS), Major General Adeyemi Yekini, has debunked the alleged rumour of sporadic exchange of gunfire between troops and some suspected herdsmen on Thursday, in Guma local government area of Benue State.
Yekini, in a telephone chat with newsmen yesterday, explained that troops of the OPWS were on an operation in Guma and some herdsmen who were sighted in a community, immediately ran away upon sighting the troops.
The commander disclosed that the troops have been placed on red alert to forestall any attacks on innocent citizens in Benue State and its environs.
According to him, the troops have intensified patrols in Nasarawa border to keep criminals and armed bandits away from attacking innocent people.
“We were in Guma, where few herdsmen were sighted and as soon as they saw our troops, they ran away. It is a usual occurrence that our troops encounter almost on a daily basis that doesn’t really need reporting.”
“Our troops have been placed on red alert to forestall any recurrence of what is happening in Plateau. Troops are on 24 hour surveillance, patrolling the length and breadth of Benue, even up to Nasarawa State.”
