January 6, 2018 – Fulani Herdsmen Resume Killings In Benue State, Stab 11 To Death In Tombu Vilalge In Logo LGA Today

Some suspected Fulani herdsmen today killed 11 persons in a fresh attack on Tombu village in Logo Local Government Area of Benue State.

Tombu village was attacked barely 24 hours after the Inspector General of Police, Mr Ibrahim Idris, met with President Muhammadu Buhari over the killings in Benue, Rivers and other parts of the country.

The state governor, Mr Samuel Ortom, confirmed the renewed killings to Channels Television shortly after an emergency meeting with the joint socio-cultural groups in the state.

Socio-cultural groups in Benue have also challenged the leadership of the Nigeria Police to visit Tombu village to be sure that the series of attacks carried out in the state were beyond communal crises as claimed.

Spokespersons for the group and President General of Mzough U-Tiv, Mr Edward Ujege, called on the United Nations and the international community to come to the rescue of Benue indigenes.

“Benue people are law-abiding and have remained so even in the face of frequent armed provoked attack by the herdsmen.

“We want any assistance from anywhere in the world to avert the killings in Benue State. And we are calling on the United Nations, United States, European Union, African Union, and any other person to come to our aids,” Ujege said.

    UN, EU, AU and the others will not take you seriously until you defend yourselves from the enemy. The herdsmen have proved times without number that they are enemies of progress but the fed. govt will not term them terrorists because they are presidential kinsmen. Am not a fan of Fayose but your leaders should learn from him on how he handled fulani menace in his state

    The Benue indigenes must brazen up to defend themselves. This has happened consecutively two times in a row. You don’t have to wait for any assistance before you can defend yourselves. You should meet them with fire and fury as the world ever seen otherwise these vagabonds will eventually take you as their slaves and nobody will be able to rescue you from their jaw. Before they can turn this Country to another Libya, these nomadic people must be stopped.

    The Governor of that State is Mumu. In some other states, the first time that kind tragic occurred will be the last time such will happen because his action should have halted the second attack. At times people do not think about how disastrous their actions until they encounter with heavy resistance and then realize they have bitten more than they can chew. It appears these wanderers have no life and they might as well cease to exist. They are Animals and should be treated as one. This Governor of that State is busying stealing state money, if not, he should have gone out of his way to safe his people. He should immediately order for lether weapons, Grenade, Toxic weapons even Biological weaponry. These Fulanis are Terrorists and do not understand what peace implies. I’m not a war monger but I hate people taking advantage of others just because the others are trying to make peace.

    I also blame the governor of Benue State for allowing the persistence of the killing in the state, since it is his responsibilities to protect the lives and properties of its citizens.
    Why can’t he use his veto power to avert the incessant killing by the fullani herdsmen.
    In Nigeria today, benue people are more in police force, can’t they go back to their state and defend their native land, why should they keep protecting the rich and the poor are made vulnerable to attack, its high time Nigerian should wake up and rid the country of the evil men.
