Nigeria News – Government Calls For Full Investigation Over Death Of Entire Family Of Nicholas Adetsav
On Sunday, in Makurdi, the Benue State capital, Benson Abounu, the Acting Governor of Benue State, ordered full investigations into the killing of five members of a family on Vandeikya street, High-level, Makurdi on Friday evening.
The Acting Governor, who described the killing of one Mr Nicholas Adetsav, a staff of Makurdi local government council and his entire family as horrific, said the suggestion that the late wife carried out the killings before she eventually took her own life was mind-boggling and required to be properly investigated.
He consequently instructed the state Commissioner of Police to carry out the full investigation with the aim of unravelling what actually happened.
Abounu further said that he was very saddened by the event of Friday evening and the loss of five (5) precious lives.
In a statement, the Media Aide to Abounu, Ede Ogaba Ede, said that the acting Governor commiserated with the relations and family of the deceased and prayed that such a horrendous thing never happened again.
The acting Governor condemned the killings, describing it as a sin against God and humanity.
