The Benue State Police Command has executed a significant crackdown on criminal activities, resulting in the arrest of 32 suspects over the past fortnight.

The crackdown led to the recovery of multiple arms and ammunition, Commissioner of Police in the state, George Chuku, said during a briefing in Makurdi, the state capital.

Among the array of incidents unveiled, one particularly unsettling occurrence involved an eight-year-old boy, Oryina, who was subjected to a horrendous act by a neighbour, Abara Ehas.

The suspect, 24, allegedly lured the child to an uncompleted building in the area and sexually assaulted him while the parents were away.

The child is currently undergoing medical treatment, while Ehas faces court arraignment on prosecution charges, the police said in a statement.
