Two young boys were yesterday gunned down by suspected cultists in Ugbokolo area of Benue State.
The victims, believed to be in their 20s, were killed around 8pm opposite the entrance to the Benue State Polytechnic.
DAILY POST gathered that one of the victims, identified as Stephen, famously known as Keshi recently graduated from the Benue State University and was waiting for his National Youth Service before the sad incident.
The second victim was identified as Adah, otherwise known as Nature.
A source hinted our reporter in Ugbokolo that on that fateful night, the victims were with their friends when the gunmen stormed the area, shot them at close range and disappeared.
Stephen, is said to have a barbing saloon in the area which is being operated by the second deceased, Adah.
The development sparked fear among residents of the area, who fled for safety.
The incident is coming barely 24 hours after a suspected armed robber was caught and stripped naked, after a foiled attempt to snatch a motorcycle from a woman in the area.
When this reporter contacted the Benue State PPRO for comment, he simply returned his call with an sms thus, ‘can’t talk now.”
