The gunmen who stormed a border community in Benue State forced residents to flee to KoffaiAhmadu in Takum Local Government Area for safety on Saturday.

Confirming the incident, the Chairman of Takum council, Shiban Tikari said security has been beefed up in the neighboring communities to avert escalation.

He described the incident as an act of cowardice, stressing that efforts are in top gear to cater for the displaced and return them to their ancestral homes.

The council boss added that no arrest had been made by security agencies so far.
