A mortuary at the Agagbe Community in Gwer-west Local Government Area of Benue State has been gutted by fire.

A resident of the community, Mr Ikyur, who spoke with our correspondent, said the cause of the fire incident has not been unraveled, saying “it was a shock to everyone”.
Meanwhile, some persons have taken to their social media handles, particularly Facebook to react to the incident.
