Gunmen on Tuesday night, October 18, shot dead 10 persons in Tor Donga, Benue State, the stronghold of wanted militant leader, Terwase Agwaza.

According to Vanguard, over 28 persons also sustained serious injuries in the attack, with many in critical conditions.

The attack came less than 24 hours after the Joint Military and Police Security Task Force (JTF) in Katsina-Ala Local Government Area of the state discovered Agwaza's armoury.

The armed men were said to have invaded the town on motorbikes at about 10p.m.
