Gunmen kill elder brother of former Benue State governor Suswam

Gunmen have shot dead Dr. Terkula Suswam, the elder brother of Senator Gabriel Suswam, at his hometown, Anyiin, Logo local government area of Benue state.

The gunmen are believed to be loyal to the notorious militia kingpin, Terwase Akwaza, better known as Gana.

Suswam, a chieftain of the PDP and the proprietor of Ashi Polytechnic, was in the campus of his polytechnic on Tuesday evening, March 2, inspecting a new building under construction with his son, when the gunmen zoomed past in a Toyota car and shot him dead before fleeing the scene.

Sources said that since Gana was killed by the military last year, some prominent persons from Sankara area who initiated the amnesty for the slain militia kingpin became targets of his loyalists.

The loyalists vowed to eliminate such prominent sons with Senator Gabriel Suswam and his elder brother among others as their main target, according to Guardian.
