MAKURDI—Unknown gunmen yesterday murdered a 26-year- old woman at Taraku in Gwer Local Government Area of Benue State while her one year baby boy is also battling for  life after being inflicted with serious injuries by the attackers.

Sources said that the deceased, Sewuse Tyoor and her son were attacked last night in their sleep by the assailants.
It was also gathered that the deceased also lost her husband in the same fashion few months ago in Taraku.

According to our source, the deceased, before her untimely death had identified four officials of the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency, NDLEA, as the murderers of her late husband, Chia Tyoor who was also killed in a bizarre manner.
