Unknown Gunmen Disrupt Burial Ceremony Of Late Dr. Samson Sambe, Attack Dr. Ortom's Vehicles - Photos

Gunmen this morning disrupted the burial ceremony of Late Dr. Samson Sambe in Adikpo, Kwande local government, Benue state. According to an eyewitness; 
"It was when Chief Hon. Dr. Samuel the governorship candidate of the All Progressives Congress, APC, in Benue State started giving his funeral oration that we started hearing gun shots in the air. Two APC vehicles were targeted with glasses and tire caught with bullets. SARS responded from Sambe's house and their response caused serious panic, making sympathizers to scamper for safety.
Elder brother of the deceased and Permanent Secretary, Bureau of Local Government and Chieftaincy Affairs, Dr Asen Sambe, had to appeal for calm as the funeral was hurriedly concluded.

In spite of the shots which intensified Chief Dr Ortom concluded his speech before he was informed that three of his vehicles parked near the Magistrate Court close to Adikpo Comprehensive College, ACC, Adikpo had been targets of some of the shots.

The glass on the owner's side of a branded Ford Hillux van was shattered and the bullet exited through the roof even as another branded pick up was hit at the tail board and the bullet went through, came out of by the left side and brushed a journalist's car parked close by. See Pix attached
