Benue State Government has concluded plans to review its security strategies towards tackling armed herdsmen, local Banditry as well as communal crisis for development to thrive.

Governor Samuel Ortom made this disclosure at the Government House Makurdi during a press conference following renewed attacks and killings in Guma Local Government Area and other communities in the state by armed herdsmen.

Ortom asserted that this became necessary due to the incompetence of the APC led Federal Government in tackling insecurity in the country, stressing that the Presidency has demonstrated lack of political will to bring the situation under control.

” The decision becomes necessary due to failure of the Federal Government to use its apparatus to protect Benue Communities from herdsmen attacks”, stressing that his administration won’t tolerate this heinous act any longer”.

The Governor lamented the plight of over one million people who are in the Internally Displaced Persons, IDPs, camps due to continued attacks on farmers by herders militia.

He called on the Federal Government to redeem its Ten Billion Naira pledge it made through Vice President Yemi Osinbajo for the resettlement of the IDPs in the state.
