2 Persons Reportedly Died In Benue IDPs Camps

Two persons have reportedly died at Internally Displaced Persons(IDPs) camp in Benue State.

One of the victims, a two-year-old girl, died at the IDP camp run by Terkura Suswam, a politician and founder of Ashi Polytechnic in Anyiin, Logo Local Government Area.

Mr. Suswam informed newsmen that the girl died at a hospital in Anyiin following complications last week.

Suswam said he had been running the camp because the government was unable to take in all the victims of the January 1 attacks by suspected herdsmen.

The second victim, 62-year-old Ortoho Tordwen, died last week at the IDP camp in Ugba, the seat of Logo LGA, according to Amande Tsea, a senior official at Benue State Emergency Management Agency.

Tsea said he couldn’t immediately remember the date that the victim died, but added that he passed on at the hospital following a heart attack.

He added that all the victims had been buried.
