Benue State Government Has Taken Fulani Herdsmen To Court


Benue State Government Has Taken Fulani Herdsmen To Court 

Miyetti Allah Kauttal Hore and its leadership has been dragged to court by the Benue State Government over the incessant and continuous killing of many people in the state.

Samuel Ortom, Governor of Benue State revealed this yesterday in an interview with newsmen in Makurdi, and he said the case will also include the 73 persons that were murdered by herdsmen in January this year.

According to the Governor, the matter which is going to come up this Thursday will only be one among many other matters in the pipeline the state is bringing up against the killer herdsmen and the Fulani socio-cultural group.

Governor Ortom stated that he still stand with his earlier call that the leaders of Miyetti Allah whom he accused of being behind the killings in the state be arrested.

“These people had, after our ranching law was signed, addressed a press conference and said they would mobilise their kinsmen to attack Benue and true to their words they started attacking Benue.


“I have severally called for their arrest but they are still walking the streets freely but I still insist that they should be arrested,” he stressed.

Speaking on the ban placed by the National Economic Council on open grazing in Benue, Taraba, Plateau, Kaduna etc, Ortom described it as a welcome decision.


He further stated that the state has been vindicated by the NEC, which had last week in their meeting, banned open grazing and recommended ranching in some states, including Benue.
He said Benue was gradually winning the hearts of Nigerians in support of open grazing prohibition and ranches establishment for livestock.
