Vice President Yemi Osinbajo has refuted claims in some quarters that the killings in Benue were results of planned agenda to wipe out people of the state.
Osibajo, who is currently Benue on a two-day working visit, made the denial on Tuesday during a stakeholders meeting at the Benue People’s Government House, Makurdi.
He said the Federal Government was determined to prove such insinuations false by rebuilding all damaged communities in the country.
He said there were several intervention that had been initiated to make life bearable to them.
The Vice President assured that the government would “dig deep into the root cause of the crises to find lasting solutions to it.”
He also dismissed the religious colorations attached to the killings, saying ” persecutions have always been with Christians and it is the duty of Christians to stop it”.
“The gospel of Jesus can not be killed by anybody; it is not fragile or written on a piece of paper,” he explained.
