Fulani herdsmen have killed 560 people in Benue since January, vows never to happen again – Ortom



Benue State Governor Samuel  Ortom  has said  more than 560 people
have been killed by Fulani herdsmen militia while half of Gwer West,
Makurdi, Guma, Logo and Kwande local government areas have been sacked
by the attackers since January, 2018.



The governor has made a vow to the benue  state people, saying i will protect this land and the people in it to my ability never to see more death record from any terro group again he says.




He also stated that his first tenure was characterized by several
challenges including lack of funds, natural disasters and insecurity
which he was gradually overcoming.




Speaking at residence of the former senate president Dr. Iyorchia
Ayu, in Gboko, while addressing major PDP stakeholders from Tarka,
Buruku and Gboko local government areas, Governor Ortom added that “In
spite of the challenges, he recorded milestones in the health,
agriculture, education and rural development sectors, adding that he
would do more if elected.




He said unfortunately, the attackers have found collaborators in some
of the leaders in the state who have vowed to remove him from office by
all means.




The Governor stressed that the attacks on several communities across
the state were beyond grazing but rather the continuation of the 1804
conquest and the occupation agenda of Jihadists.



He appealed to other aspirants to eschew violence as they solicit the
mandate of the people, pointing out that peace should be the ultimate
desire of everyone.




Responding, elders of Jemgbah comprising Tarka, Gboko and Tarka, assured the Governor of his re-election.
