It was learnt that the incident happened about 10am at a filling station near Gyado suburb in Gboko.

The Police Public Relations Officer of the Benue Command (PPRO), DSP Catherine Anene, confirmed the incident but added that the Police were yet to get full details of what transpired at the time of filing this report.

However, locals told newsmen that the gunmen were likely to be political thugs, who attacked the former NHRC boss and caused panic at the scene of their operation as they shot sporadically into the air to scare away residents.
