Fifteen lawmakers elected on the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and a member from the Labour Party in Benue State House of Assembly, have fled Makurdi, the state capital.

The 16 legislators claimed they absconded Markurdi, on alleged threat to life and monetary inducement by the All Progressives Congress (APC) led State Government.

The lawmakers also said they fled the state capital on Tuesday, after the 7th assembly was dissolved without inaugurating the 8th assembly.

They explained, in an interview with Channels Television, that they had been offered money and car gifts to allow the APC with 14 members take leadership of the House.

The fleeing lawmakers also lamented that their refusal to accept the offer put them at cross purpose with the APC government which began to threaten their lives, forcing them to run to safety.
