Benue Killings: Ortom meets Buhari in Abuja to discuss herdsmen attacks

14 January 2018

The state has begun implementing an anti-grazing law passed on November 1, 2017 that Muslim Fulani herdsmen have ignored. So it is hate speech to call those who killed hundreds of our people in Agatu, Guma, Logo and other States of the Federation.

Some of the residents couldn't hide their anger as they placed curses on the killers.

Benue State Government has concluded arrangement to give mass burial to the victims of the New Year attack next Thursday.

He said, "Federal government has to constitute a panel to investigate who these herdsmen are and why they behave the way they do".

The Governor of the State, Mr. Ortom, had accused the leadership of Miyetti Allah Kautal Hore, a group of Fulani cattle breeders in the country, for the string of killings. Just like trading is associated with Ndigbo and we often refer to them as Igbo traders, so is cattle rearing associated with the Fulani.

During the meeting, the governor said he was elected to govern the living and not the dead and, as such, appealed to the people of the state to rally behind him irrespective of political party affiliation.

An estimated 69 people have been killed in suspected herdsmen attacks on villages in the agrarian Benue State between December 31 and January 8, according to Benue State Government officials.

He also said he advised Governor Samuel Ortom of Benue State when he signed the anti-grazing law of the dangers involved in its implementation.
