“They left to attend a traditional marriage of their cousin at Okpa-Ogegen Village in Oju local government area of Benue, through Effium/Benue route and had yet to return,” the police statement said. “The family has contacted the celebrant, and she confirmed that the victims were not sighted at the ceremony.”
