Benue State Governor, Samuel Ortom

Despite the Inspector General of Police, Ibrahim Idris and his team relocating to Benue, the killings continue unabated as armed Fulani herdsmen killed two women and two others in fresh attacks in Logo and Guma Local Government Areas of Benue State.

State Governor, Samuel Ortom disclosed this on Wednesday at the Benue Peoples House Makurdi when he received former military administrator of the State, retired Brigadier-General Dominic Oneya.

The retired general had led a delegation of his Foundation on a condolence visit to the governor.

Mr. Ortom said two women had been reportedly killed in Guma and two persons in Logo.

According to him, pockets of killings were still going on and reiterated his call on security agents to arrest the leadership of Miyetti Allah Kautal Hore whom he said are still issuing threats of resisting implementation of the Open Grazing Prohibition and Ranches Establishment Law in the state.

Governor Ortom said that crises between herdsmen and farmers had lingered for years without anyone having the courage to address it, adding that the Open Grazing Prohibition and Ranches Establishment Law in Benue was meant to permanently address the challenge.
