Mass burial for New Year's attack victims

Mass burial for New Year's attack victims

Speaking on Thursday shortly after many residents gathered to bury victims of the Fulani herdsmen attacks of January 1 and 2, 2018, in parts the State, Unongo said if the trend continues the people would train their own army in the state to defend themselves.

The IGP's apology follows the demand for an unreserved apology by the leader of grieving Benue mothers, Rebecca Apezan at the stakeholders meeting convened by the Mr Ibrahim to help tackle the lingering herdsmen attacks on Benue communities.

Mohammed Hussaini, chairman of Miyetti Allah Cattle Breeders Association of Nigeria (MACBAN), said the Fulani and Tiv people in Nasarawa State, were living peacefully. We are 100 per cent in support of what Governor Samuel Ortom has done.

The post IGP Apologises Over Comments Made On Benue Killing appeared first on Channels Television.

He, therefore, charged the Federal Government to rise up to the occasion and stop state sponsorship of militias from festering as the effect of it would fall on its head, and consequently called on it to deploy the military to the two states to suppress activities of militias.

"Lawrence Onoja, former military governor of Katsina state, described the attacks" a conspiracy against the indigenes" and said it would be resisted.

Nearly in tears, the state governor, Samuel Ortom said during the burial, "If the herdsmen think that the killing of our people will make us to stop the enforcement of the law, they have failed".

Plateau state governor, Samson Lalong had faulted the anti-grazing law, saying he warned Ortom against it. We will not be deterred because I am ready to pay the supreme price for the implementation of the anti-open grazing law.

In a condolence message posted on its official Twitter Handle, the party sympathized with the government and people of Benue State and called for the arrest and prosecution of the perpetrators of the evil act. "I will continue to insist on the arrest of the factional leader of Miyetti Allah Kautal Houre".

"We want an enlightened approach to this matter". We pray for the repose if the innocent souls.

The rights group said it was unconstitutional, that instead of arresting, prosecuting and sending the convicted killers to firing squads for their horrendous crimes against humanity, government officials are debating on measures to reward the armed Fulani herdsmen with the juicy landed assets in the name of cattle colonies at public costs even when the forceful or pretentious confiscation of ancestral landed assets and donation to Fulani herdsmen in odd communities is capable of igniting long lasting asymmetric civil wars.

He explained that the state did not have adequate land for farmers, not to talk of space for grazing.
