The Chairman of Guma Local Government Area of Benue State Nigeria, has imposed a 12-hour curfew on Daudu community.
The decision was necessitated by days of unrest caused by allegations of missing penises.
Recall last week, Young men in Daudu town had complained that some male reproductive organs were missing, at an alarming rate.
The youth went on rampage after claiming that some of the community member including a pastor was responsible for the act.
Irate youth had attacked a police station, threatening to burn it down over the development.
the curfew will be between 8:00pm to 6:00am daily until the security situation improved and calm was restored.
The reason we imposed curfew is that the youths in the Daudu community have raised alarm and accused certain persons of removing their genitals; male and female organs.
“They went ahead to burn down the properties of those they suspected and even killed a pastor of the church whom they accused of being responsible.
“We talked to them and pleaded with them to allow the law to take its course. Even the governor of the state went there himself to talk to them
