Killer herdsmen: Nigeria Police denies withdrawal of Special Forces from Benue

Nigeria Police Force has denied alleged reports that it has withdrawn Police Special Forces from the theatre of operation in Benue State.

It also faulted the claims on Sunday in a statement signed by the Benue State Commissioner of Police, Mr Fatai Owoseni.

Countering the withdrawal claims, Mr Owoseni said: “the Inspector General of Police, Mr Ibrahim Idris, has continued to reinforce the Command with personnel and material resources as it becomes operationally expedient.

“With the reinforcement, which is aimed at encouraging the speedy return of displaced persons to their respective communities, the Command has been able to increase its visibility across the state.

“While the situation is relatively calm, the Police Command would continue to partner with well-meaning members of society and sister security agencies to ensure the security of life and property in Benue.”
