Benue State House of Assembly has said it would continue to back the enforcement of the  Open Grazing Prohibition and Ranches Establishment Law of the state.

The House of Assembly while condemning the recent attack on Governor Samuel Ortom by Militia Herders at his farm, maintained that the Governor has remained committed in defense of the Benue people’s right to leave and farm freely on their farms. 

A statement by the Chairman House Standing Committee on  Information and Orientation, Mr Tertsea Gbgise for the Benue House of Assembly lamented the dangerous dimension in the security challenge occasioned by herders with the intention to take over Benue valley and other parts of the nation.

The house urged the Governor not to be distracted by the scare tactics of the Herdsmen. It lauded Ortom over his refusal to be intimidated by the attackers and their co-conspirators, imploring Nigerians to see the Governor as a hero rather than being attacked by armed Militiaman. 

The Assembly enjoined the citizens to consider the attached on the Governor as an eye opener, stating that all hands must be on deck to fight insecurity in Nigeria.

It implored security agents to redouble efforts to fish out the bandits and bring them to justice, stressing that the current security situation in the country is capable of throwing the nation into chaos if not checked.
