Benue Govt impossed 12 hours curfew over increase in missing of pennies
“We talked to them and pleaded with them to allow the law to take its course. Even the governor of the state went there himself to talk to them.
“But last Monday, the youths mobilized and went to police station in Daudu and threatened to burn it down accusing one other man whom they beat to a state of unconsciousness while accusing him of removing someone’s genital organ.
“So it became too much and it appeared they will cause more destruction if they are allowed to be moving about freely.
“That calls for the position of curfew in the community, from 8:00pm to 6:00am. It will last as long as they are ready to rest.”
The LG boss added that a popular motorcycle rider had been arrested in connection with the incident.
