Police orders investigation into murder of Suswam’s brother

Benue State Police Command has ordered an immediate investigation into the murder of Chief Terkura Suswam, an elder brother to ex-governor of the state, Senator Gabriel Suswam.

Chief Suswam was assassinated on Tuesday evening at his hometown, Anyiin, in Logo Local Government Area of Benue State.

A statement by the Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO), DSP Catherine Anene, indicated that the state commissioner of Police, Audu Madaki, has vowed to unearth those behind the murder.

“On 2/3/2021 at about 07:30 pm, information was received that while Dr. Terkura Suswam  and  his aide, Mr. Solomon, sat opposite  his house at Elohim Plaza, Anyiin, to supervise repairs at the said plaza, yet-to-be-identified gunmen who drove in a Toyota Camry vehicle attacked and shot him and his aide.

“A team of police officers on patrol in the area rushed to the scene and conveyed the victims to NKST Anyiin Hospital where they were eventually confirmed dead. Corpses have been deposited at the hospital for autopsy,” the PPRO stated.

Anene said the command also commiserated with the family members and friends of the deceased, adding that, “The commissioner of police has ordered a discreet investigation to ensure that perpetrators of this gruesome murder are apprehended and justice is served. Anyiin town has been cordoned by additional police teams deployed to assist the division to nip this crime in the bud,” she said.
