Two women, have reportedly been murdered for being lesbians.
According to reports, the ladies were burnt to death on Thursday, October 6 at the ‘Owner’s Occupier area’ in Makurdi, Benue State.
Reports on social media says they were caught in the cat then taken away, stripped and beaten before been set ablaze. The Benue State Police Command has however denied any knowledge of this upon being contacted.
Benue State Police PRO, Moses Yamu, who spoke to Daily post said:
“We have seen the story on social media but report has not been made.”
“I still doubt if this happened in Benue. How can such event happen in Makurdi and the police is not informed? Anyway, we shall let the public know once we are done with our investigations,” He said.
