The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, in Benue, has said the state is descending into anarchy under the present leadership of Governor Hyacinth Alia.

The party in a statement by its publicity secretary, Bemgba Iortyom condemned the indefinite suspension of Kwande LGA Chairman of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Terdoo Kenti, and other members of his Executive Committee.
