The Benue State Police Commissioner, Fatai Owoseni, has debunked reports that the Special Forces had been withdrawn from the state.

The social media was awash with news of withdrawal of the Special Forces deployed last month by the Inspector-General of Police (IG) Ibrahim Idris, following farmers/herdsmen clashes in parts of the state.

But Owoseni said the joint operation, headed by Deputy Inspector-General of Police (DIG) Josak Habila, was still active in the state, adding that the IG has continued to reinforce same.

He said: “It is not true that the Special Forces have been withdrawn from the theatre of operation in Benue State. Rather, the Inspector General of Police has continued to reinforce the command with personnel and material resources as it becomes operationally expedient.
