January 2nd, 2018 – Residents Flee As Fulani Herdsmen Kill 50, Injure Others In Benue Tiv Community

Fulani Herdsmen Kill 50 In Benue Tiv Community Today, Governor Ortom Blames Buhari 

The governor of Benue state today said that 50 died after some Fulani herdsmen attacked a Tiv community in the state.

Governor Ortom who disclosed this at the Benue state Government House in Makurdi today blamed Buhari for refusing to protect the people.

His words:

“The blood of those people killed by the Fulani herdsmen are on the hands of the federal government and if nothing is done they will cry unto God” .

The federal government was alerted on the threat of the herdsmen who had vowed to resist the anti- grazing bill enacted by the state government.

He added that people especially children were butchered like animals with their hands chopped off.

A survivor, Anande Dooshima said her brother who just completed his NYSC was killed in the brutal attack carried out today.

    Why can’t the Governor protect his own people and why is everyone afraid of the Fulani instead of being prepared and taking up arms and ammunition to protect themselves? Rather, everyone is blaming Buhari and expecting the President alone to fix all of Nigeria’s problems. Nobody blamed Jonathan Goodluck for Boko Haram that was unheard of before his administration got into office. Enough of this lukewarm attitude. Take up arms to defend your people and land and the Fulani will flee. If Israel didn’t fight back and prepared and ready at all times, the nation of Israel would have disappeared from the earth today. Enough is enough.

      You are right, Lola. The best way to solve madness is to use madness. I wonder why people cannot form a counter-force against fulani attacks….This must stop.

      thanks for that constructive one, the federal govt has become clueless as well as vision less over the whole issue. let the pple take up arms every where to defend themselves.

      You have displayed so much ***** here:
      *The President is the Commander-in-Chief of Nigeria’s Armed Forces. He controls the Army, Police, Navy, etc.
      The Governor can influence the State Police Commissioner, and Military Commander to some extent depending on his relationship with them.
      *Boko Haram issue started before Jonathan even became Acting President. Go and find out when Muhammad Yusuf, the Boko Haram founder was killed.
      Don’t allow undue ***** to affect your good ****.

      Don’t talk ********, when has state governor right to buy state arms to empower any militia? Tue president is the only known C in C, what do u expect Orton to do beyond the law he signed? executing that law has to do with a strong corporation of the security which is totally controlled by the FG. nonsense and obsolete govt system. Nigeria wake up… vote out PMB… back to Daura.

    As a governor his power is limited,Buhari is the commander in chief of Nigeria arm forces that is the reason why it is possible to withdraw security aid from governors at will. All we should be clamouring for is state police and all this issues will be taken of.

      where we have put hatred, love for money, religious differences and sentiments before the common good, what more should we expect?
      we don’t practice what we preach. who are the herdsmen? where even a Fulani man cannot compete with our leaders in terms of ownership of cow.

    Herdsmen killing indigiens all the time and the governors are not protecting their citizens. I guess the governors have an agenda to govern cows rather than humans

      There’s absolute nothing the governor can do in this circumstance, all the power rest on the president,he is the C of C, the governor can’t control the police, army even common civi defense is not within his reach, that’s why we are clamouring for state police but the federal government does not want to hear that.

    it is an error for a stranger to come to your house and killing your children and you are expecting another man to come and protect you when you know the person you are calling to help you is a descender of the people that is killing you. it time every state arm their citizens for self defence.


    January 2, 2018 at 6:43 PM

    Lola what you simply forgot is kill the Fulani herdsmen with gun and face the law of the Gov’t and the big man in Sokoto. please before think you talk after all during Jonathan can name states attacked by them or an individual. What is wrong Nigerians!

    Why is the government very slow to act when it comes to the issue of headsmen with on the kills, and most of those killings do not take place in moslem community only christian dominated area.

    How can PMB send troops to dislodge fulani herds men when he PMB himself is a fulani. Benue is in the hand of God. Pity for this government. Government of lies and falsehood

    This heartless people will continue reducing our is time to mobilize ourselves and stop this nonsense.dont ever expect any positive response from this government,this is the same government that declared IPOB terrorist group when a bullet was shot,same government sent operation Python dance when the herdsmen needed the dance must,it’s time to mobilize and end this killings.

    The Governor and all the rich and influential people of Benue state are fooooooooooools… una no get sense at all. In fact fowl get sense pass una. Make una go borrow sense from Zonkwa people of Zango kataf. These Fulani peo
    ple are supported and sponsored by the same government you are asking for help. In case you do not know, there is a ploy to hand over your state to the fulanis… they are achieving that little by little.

    Horror begets horror to nullify horror… This killings cannot stop until Benue people wipe out the entire Fulani atom in the state… Let us begin operation #KillAFulaniToday

      …u just hit d point.The government will only react when u overturn the table, I.e, by the time u begin to take the fight to the Fulani communities by killing them without notice , that is when u’ll see the reaction of government about this whole issue

    Gov Ortom should stop blaming mr President. Mr president can’t use magic to aids all Nigerians. State governments must get involved in order to subdue the tribulations facing their people.

    If the Buhari govt is sincere, let the Python dance toward the cows and the owners esp the wicked fulanis around Benue. No Tiv man will vote buhaha 2019.
