The traditional ruler of Ochoro in Konshisha Local Government Area of Benue State, Chief Dennis Okpe Ijoko, has been killed and many of his subjects are said to be missing, following an attack by suspected armed militia on Ochoro Community.
The two communities, Bonta in Konshisha Local Government Area and their neighbouring Ukpute in Oju Local Government Area have been at war with each other over boundary.
The perennial boundary dispute has defied all known solutions initiated by government and community leaders.
