A Makurdi Chief Magistrates' Court on Thursday remanded two farmers, Moses Gure and Terna Aondoyima, in a correctional centre over their alleged involvement in acts of terrorism.

The defendants, residents of Tongov Village, near Makurdi, the Benue State capital, were also charged with criminal conspiracy.

Kanshio alleged that they were members of a dreaded gang of armed bandits, led by one Azonto, known for terrorizing the residents of Benue North region.

He said that the defendants had for long threatened the peace in the area through violent crimes, including kidnapping and armed robbery.

Their offences contravene Section 97(a) of the Penal Code Law of Benue, 2004 and Section 4 of the Abduction, Hostage-Taking, Kidnapping, Secret Cult and Similar Activities Prohibition Law of Benue, 2017.
