IRRITATING: Benin Republic invades 16 Nigerian villages, hoists flag of annexation

I was amazed at the news of the breach of boarder laws by Nigeria’s neigbhour, the Benin Republic as it got our attention through twitter trending footed by Vanguard Newspaper online. Thus, we bring you the details in full reference to Vanguard article quoted below:

ILORIN – The neighbouring Benin Republic has invaded sixteen villages in Okuta, the border town in Baruten local government area of Kwara state, thereby causing serious fear and palpable tension in the affected communities.

In their shrewd determination to annex the Nigerian villages, Vanguard reliably gathered that authorities of Benin Republic have gone ahead to construct Gerdarmes Office(Police station) in the affected Nigerian communities and also hoist the country flag at the affected Nigeria villages.
