According to reports making rounds on social media, two ladies were on Thursday, set ablaze by an angry mob at the Owner’s Occupier area in Makurdi, Benue State for allegedly involving themselves in acts of lesbianism.
DailyPost reported that the victims were caught in the act and were stripped naked, beaten and set ablaze on the street by residents of the area.
However, in a disclosure to a correspondent, the Benue State Police Command, denied knowledge of the report, saying that several efforts to get the details of the report had proved abortive.
The Benue State Police PRO, Moses Yamu said,
“We have seen the story on social media but report has not been made. I still doubt if this happened in Benue.
“How can such event happen in Makurdi and the police is not informed? Anyway, we shall let the public know once we are done with our investigations.”
