PMB's Visit To Benue Sign Of Hope - Ortom

The Governor of Ekiti State, Ayodele Fayose, Monday reacted to President Muhammadu Buhari's shocking statement in Benue State that he was not aware that Inspector General of Police (IGP), Ibrahim Idris, left the state after one day in disregard for his orders to remain until the herdsmen-farmers clashes were brought to an end.

Ex-president, Olusegun Obasanjo has visited the gravesite of 73 people killed by Fulani herdsmen in Benue state.

He, however, said that the meeting was not the best place to expose the inefficiency of his appointees, and appealed to Benue people to exercise restraint and live in peace with their neighbors.

He denied insinuations that he overlooked the killings that happened in Benue, saying he is genuinely anxious over them.

In a remark, the representative of Miyetti Allah Cattle breeders Association Shettima Muhammad who exonerated MACBAN from famers attack said, the association members were not in support of the attack saying they are fully in support of the law and appealed for unity and peace.

He said that the insecurity in some states was a major concern to his government, adding that concerted efforts were being made to restore normalcy to every part of the country.

"What I did was to call him and give him (a) directive".

He was received at the airport by the state Governor Samuel Ortom and other top government officials in the state.


Governor Samuel Ortom said the recent attacks had displaced 170,000 people with children of school age constituting 60 per cent.

Our correspondent noted that security operatives from Abuja took over the activities at the state's seat of government. The Federal Government should compensate them and assist in the rebuilding of their homes as promised by the committee on displaced people headed by the vice president.

State Government has announced the cancellation of the mass burial for victims of Fulani herdsmen massacres in a community in Okpokwu local government last Monday.

"As a born again Christian and someone who believes in the fear of God, I can not and we have never encouraged the establishment of any militia group", he said.

Akume expressed the anger of the Tivs with the president over the way and manner he handled herdsmen killings in the state.

The president said he preferred to quietly "read the riot act" as he did to the Inspector General of Police when the Benue attacks began.
