Some communities in Benue, particularly in Bonta, Tse Anyom, Agidi, Adoka, Agune, Awajir, Gbinde, Guleya, Gungul, Aku and Amande in Konshisha and Ullam and Tse Igbom in Gwer East local government areas, have reportedly been under sustained military action so since April 8, 2020, apparently as a reprisal for the earlier killing of military personnel deployed to the area to quell some inter-communal strife.

The Public Relations Officer of the Service, Dr. Peter Afunanya, said this in a statement on Friday in Abuja following the alarm raised by former Minister of Aviation, Chief Femi Fani-Kayode, that there was an attempt to arrest Igboho.
