According to him, between the farming area and police station where they would lodge the report, the cattle rearers have gone or they’ll tell they are the one but their who has already gone. “Even if you succeeded in getting police to arrest them, the money spent and other expenditures made in transportation of police to and from the station would cover up the compensation paid, if not more. “If you meet them on it, you’ll be afraid to talk to them because they could  kill you, and nothing will happen”, he lamented.

The farmer sighted instances of Killings of one farmer Mr Oleje  Obande in a village known as Otobi and the killings which took place in Omusu village, among others, in Edumoga Ehaje.He therefore appealed to Benue state Governor Mr Samuel Ortom and other relevant authorities to intervene and liberate them from hunger, starvation and slavery in their ancestral home.
