The Nigerian military, through the joint military spike operation in Benue State, named Operation Whirl Stroke, OPWS, has directed armed youths or groups in the state to immediately surrender illegal weapons to the military or the police without delay.

Major-General Adeyemi Yekini, Commander of OPWS, gave the directive during a peace meeting with leaders of Tiv, Jukun and Fulani ethnic groups in the state after the crisis that rocked Abinsi town in Guma Local Government Area of the state.

He further appealed for peace among the conflicting parties and asked those who were displaced by crisis in any part of the state to return home. He assured them of security and at the same time warned against mob action against suspected cultists and other criminal elements across the state.
