Mark Vs Onjeh: Otukpo boils few days to election, three killed

Written By Idoma Television on Wednesday, February 17, 2016 | 12:53:00 AM

At least, three persons have been reportedly killed ahead of the Benue South senatorial rerun election when supporters of the All Progressives Congress, APC, and the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, clashed on Tuesday.

The clash, which occurred at Ugboju in Otukpo Local Government Area, is coming few days after Senator David Mark petitioned the Inspector General of Police, alleging threat to his life ahead of the re-run slated for February 20.

It was gathered that those killed in the crisis were Okwoche Omale, Andrew Adaji and Audu Okopi, with several houses also razed.

 It was also gathered that the crisis was triggered by a disagreement between the caretaker Chairman of Otukpo Local Government Area, Mr. Ijachi Ude of the APC and his younger brother, Eje Ude of the PDP.

The representative of Otukpo/Akpa in the state House of Assembly, Johnson Ahubi told newsmen that the crisis was fueled by some supporters of the APC.

However, the Police Area Commander for Otukpo, Mr. Fasuba Akinyele, said the report had not been brought to his notice yet.
