Christopher Inalegwu, elder brother of Benue State commissioner of information, culture and tourism Michael Inalegwu, has been shot dead on his farm.

The surviving Inalegwu said his brother was killed on his farm in Aku village of Agatu Local Government Area, Benue.

“They opened fire on him at his farm in Aku in Agatu. We cannot be cajoled to submit our land,” the commissioner said.

Inalegwu added that his only sibling was not given immediate healthcare which resulted in his death.

He assured that the state government would do everything possible to increase security in Gwer West and Agatu where residents face attacks.
