Agatu crises: FG sends soldiers to Benue

Written By Idoma Television on Saturday, March 12, 2016 | 12:18:00 AM

The Federal Government has approved the deployment of soldiers to Benue to end the nagging farmers/herdsmen crisis in the state.

Gov. Samuel Ortom disclosed this on Friday in Makurdi while administering Oath of Office on the President, Customary Court of Appeal (CCA), Justice Cosmos Idye and a High Court judge, Justice Augustine Ityonyiman.

He said the invasion of some communities by Fulani herdsmen in the state was becoming worrisome adding that “more Local Government Areas are being attacked on daily basis’’.
“As we speak, the Fulanis have started moving out of Agatu to other parts of the state.

“What we are witnessing today in Benue is more than what happened in the North-East,’’ he said.
He said that Agatu, Logo, Tarka, Buruku, and Kwande were all under attack by the Fulani mercenaries.

Ortom charged the judiciary nationwide to support government anti-corruption crusade through effective and timely dispensation of justice.
In a remark, the CCA President pledged to uphold the Constitution and judicial ethics in the discharge of his duties.
