His words:

“As we speak over 40,000 persons have so far been displaced as a result of the attacks on our people in Guma and Logo LGAs.

“Government has decided to open four camps, three in Guma LGA and one in Logo LGA, the camps in Guma LGA are in Daudu, Gbajimba and Agasha, while the camp in Logo LGA is in Ugba”.

“The camps are in areas that are safe and enough security has being provided for the safety of the Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs).”

“What we are doing at the moment is to open temporary camps except the one in Daudu that already has existing camp facilities, the others camps are situated in primary schools located in the areas.”

“We do not hope to keep them in the camps for a long time, remember this is January and most of the affected persons are farmers who are still harvesting their crops”.

      No group ,ethnicity, or state can kill or fight the Fulani herdsmen in Nigeria. They have the backing of the Nigerian Army, Police and other security agencies. Then how can any sane person fight the authority. Fulani controls everything presently

    JUST IMAGINE That, how can legitimate indigenes of the land run away from their homes and become refugees in their God given father‘s land all because of some low life vagabonds like that.

    Since it was the anti grazing bill signed into law of the land that they were agitation for that means Taraba State should be battle-ready and wait for their possible invation. And kill at sigh any nonsense that presented himself in the name of attack.

    I take a stroll…

    The dream and hard work of the bloodthirsty marauders is now gradually taking shape as planned, that of evicting the indigenous dwellers out of their ancestral lands so they can take position of inheritance over vast array of properties and farmlands for their families and cattle. The resources used in bringing aid and relief to the displaced residents could have been used in the first place to beef up security in the affected areas and the State at large before the Fulani Herds men incursion. Announcing how 40,000 benue resident are been provided with shelters is just medicine after death that can’t permanently solve the problem of incessant attacks by the marauders. More could have been done to avert the attacks that eventually transformed into a full blown bloodbath, destruction of properties and displacement of people. May God help this country out of it foolishness.

    Those are not herdsmen but Fulani Terrorists imported from Chad,their sole aim is to take over the land. What we are witnessing is a gradual process in Islamizing Nigeria by force, THE government started it by their anti grazing nonsense and everything is working as they planned..
    The history on how they conquered the North will tell anyone what their master plan is…..sooner or later,people will realize what Nnamdi Kanu was talking about.
