He noted that in a similar bizarre circumstance, two students of Benue State Polytechnic, Ugbokolo believed to be brothers were murdered in cold blood by gun men suspected to be cultists.
Senator Mark who said that situation is troubling urged the citizens to cooperate with the security operatives “to fish out the perpetrators of these heinous crimes.”

He cautioned youths in the state to refrain from any act of criminality or violence because “you will  be putting your lives and future in jeopardy.
