Four Killed In Fresh Herdsmen Attack In Benue




Fresh attacks by armed herdsmen on innocent people in Logo and Guma Local Government Areas of Benue State have claimed four lives.

Governor Samuel Ortom disclosed on Wednesday at the Benue Peoples House Makurdi, while receiving former military administrator of the State, retired Brigadier-General Dominic Oneya, who led a delegation of his Foundation on a condolence visit to the Governor.

Governor Ortom revealed that two women had been reportedly killed in Guma and two persons in Logo.

He stated that  despite the presence of the Inspector General Police and 663 armed mobile policemen deployed to the state, killings are still been perpetrated without the attackers  arrested.

The governor however called 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 stated that crises between herdsmen and farmers had lingered for years without anyone coming up with a bold step to address same, saying the Open Grazing Prohibition and Ranches Establishment Law in Benue was meant to permanently address the challenge.

Earlier, retired Brigadier-General Oneya said his mission was to commiserate with the Governor and Benue people over the gruesome murder of 73 persons by herdsmen.
