The Benue police command nabbed a young guy on August 22 for demolishing PDP billboards throughout the state on that day.

Bemgba Iortyom, the state’s PDP publicity secretary, claimed that a task group from Makurdi Local Government Region caught the suspect on Monday morning after he had destroyed party billboards in Wurukum area of the capital city.

Iortyom said; 

 “When we heard about it, we tried to get first information about what had happened, and we advised the Task Force to call in the police.

“We have been suffering from such acts before now where all our billboards were destroyed. We have lost count of how many of our billboards have been destroyed in the past.

“One was recently destroyed at Oshigbudu in Agatu, Wadata, New GRA, and so on. We have met with the Police Commissioner.

“When we got to where the task force was holding him (the suspect), we asked that he be brought to the police. He is now in the custody of the police, and we are here as an interested party.”

Police Public Relations Officer, Catherine Anene, confirmed the arrest and also disclosed that the suspect may be charged to court soon.
