Speaking on Thursday in Markurdi at the mass burial of the Fulani herdsmen victims, a tear-eyed Avenya said that the attacks were a deliberate attempt to wipe-out Benue citizens.

Bello-Torob also lauded the government for deploying soldiers to the affected three states: Taraba, Benue and Nasarawa to maintain law and order as well as prevent possible escalation of the crisis.

Some of the residents also expressed worries over the incessant attacks on farmers in the state and said that the acts were unhealthy for an agrarian state like Benue. "It's about Benue state and I'm not talking of Plateau state", Ortom said.

It said that several persons operating as Civilian JTF in Benue states arrested by the military have confessed that they are answerable to the governor and some of his senior officials.




"For several years these attackers have turned our attractive and endowed land into their killing fields and the main reason has been the clashes between herdsmen and farmers, but these attacks have intensified with alarming devastation since 2011", he said.

Governor Samson Lalong of Plateau state had faulted the anti-grazing law, saying he warned Ortom against it.

Idris who arrived Makurdi on Wednesday on the directives of President Muhammadu Buhari that he should immediately relocate to Benue state against the background of recent killings by alleged armed herders said his statement was misinterpreted.

The representative of the United Nations, Dr Mathins Ejibike, in his condolence message to the government and people of the state, said killings in Benue required worldwide attention. The insecurity was only in some parts of the North- East and North-Central but now there's Enugu massacre, Edo massacre, Rivers massacre and then Benue.
