He was killed by yet-to-be-identified gunmen.
Witnesses said the victim whose name was simply given as Bem was killed by gunmen earlier today.
The deceased was said to be a PDP youth leader of Agan ward in Makurdi local government area of the state.
A witness told our correspondent that the area is notorious for various criminal activities.
“There is hardly any day you won’t hear of killings in some parts of Northbank, it’s either the cultists are fighting themselves or criminals are dispossessing victims and killing them in the process.
“Some innocent lives have been wasted in this area. This young man too was felled by a bullet today but I can’t precisely say who his killers were,” the witness said.
When contacted, the Spokesperson of the Benue Police, SP. Catherine Anene, said she was yet to get any report of the incident.
