Stop chasing Fulani herdsmen, allow them stay; they are your brothers – Ortom tells Agatu people

The Governor of Benue State, Samuel Ortom has called on the people of Agate Local Govt Area of the state to imbibe the culture of cohabiting in peace with Fulani herdsmen.

He appealed to the people of the Benue South community to "give peace a chance and cohabit with indigenous Fulani herdsmen as brothers as was the case in the past."
This is coming on the heels of the controversial agreement signed on behalf of the community which apportioned a portion in to Fulani herdsmen from neighbouring Nasarawa State.

The governor made this revelation on Wednesday in Obagaji, headquarters of the crisis ridden community alongside his Nasarawa State counterpart, Tanko Almakura.

Ortom who urged the Agatu people to pardon the herdsmen and let God fight for them, also appealed to them to embrace peace and live together with the herders as brothers.

He said "forgive and allow the Fulanis who were born in the land to return, the Bible admonishes that vengeance belongs to God."
