Senator Ben Murray-Bruce (PDP-Bayelsa East) has condemned the abduction of four policemen and killing of one of them.

Four policemen were last week kidnapped and a security van burnt down after suspected Fulani herdsmen ambushed security men in Logo LGA of the state.

The officers were said to be returning from a confidence-building mission in remote villages when suspected herdsmen opened fire on them in Tse Akpam village, near Azege town.

In a post on his Twitter page, Murray-Bruce wrote: “I condemn the abduction of four policemen in Benue and the killing and mutilation of one of them.

“My question to the Inspector of Police is this-After this incident, does he still stand by his position that what is happening in Benue is a ‘communal clash’?”
