Two teenage boys identified as Terdue Tivkaa, 20 and Tarvershima Fazanga, 19, have been arrested as armed robbery suspects for robbing and raping a 50-year-old woman at her home in Zaki Biam, Benue state.

The state commissioner of police, Omololu Bishi, said a report was received at the command on January 20, 2019, that some armed robbers entered the compound, robbed their victims of some money and handsets and thereafter raped an old woman.

He said the swift response by Police Operatives led to the arrest of two suspects who mentioned one Solomon as their gang leader. Solomon, however, died while exchanging fire with the Police in a bid to evade arrest.
