Man Tortured To Death In Benue Over Missing Goat

A middle-aged man in Benue has died after he was seriously tortured over a missing goat at Lessel community, in Ushongo Local Government Area of the state on Tuesday, February 23.

The man identified as Ordue Akume, was reportedly killed after his youngest sibling allegedly reported to the youths in the community that his goat was missing.

Vantage News gathered that they decided to consult an oracle as part of their investigative measure, when it was revealed that the deceased stole the goat.

The deceased however denied the allegation but in a bid to ensure that he admit and return the said goat, the suspects persisted with all forms of torture despite pleas by neighbours and passers by to halt the torture.

When it became obvious to them that he could not survive, they moved and dumped him at a private clinic where he passed away.

Reacting to the barbaric act, Ushongo Council chairman, Asawa, ordered the immediate arrest and prosecution of the six men who tortured the man to death.

Asawa also visited the clinic where the corpse was abandoned and moved it to General Hospital, Lessel morgue for further necessary action.

As at press time, the six suspects were currently in police custody.
