Makurdi - The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Benue State has raised an alarm over the murder of six of its chieftains in the state, reports Vanguard.
The party said the heinous crimes against its members has so as far gone largely unchecked as security agencies had no tangible evidence of arrests of perpetrators of the crimes.

Godwin Ayihe, the Publicity Secretary of the PDP in the state in a statement on Wednesday, said it is unacceptable to leaders of the PDP that six of the top party's members have been murdered in cold blood while security agencies seem to have no answers to the situation.
He called on security agencies and Governor Samuel Ortom to unravel the masterminds of the heinous crimes.
However, in a swift reaction, the All Progressives Congress (APC) in a statement by its state Chairman, Abba Yaro, absolved the party from the killings and blamed internal wrangling in the PDP for the development.
