Benue state governor, Samuel Ortom says his people are being pushed too far by herdsmen who attacked residents of Agwabi village in Binev Council Ward of Buruku local government area of the state last Friday May 13th. In an interview with newsmen in Makurdi, the state capital today May 16th, Ortom said;
“I didn’t become Governor to preside over dead bodies. No day passes without the blood of the innocent spilled by rampaging gunmen! Our people are being pushed too far by herdsmen! The old and the young have been slaughtered, children separated from their parents and many people chased out of their homes to sleep in the bush without food to eat. This is genocide and I call on all Nigerians to condemn the invasion, killings, destruction and occupation of Benue communities by herdsmen.”
