Benue State Governor, Samuel Ortom on Tuesday lamented the continuous killings in the state by suspected herdsmen.
Speaking on the attack on Abegana village, which house one of the eight designated Internally Displaced Persons’ camps in the state, Ortom said that 70 people had been killed in Makurdi, Guma and Gwer West local government areas.
He said the attack on Abegana IDP camp, where seven people were killed on Tuesday, should make the President, Major General Muhammad Buhari (retd.) to convey security summit to discuss insecurity in the country.
Ortom said, “We are being overstretched and the people are fed up. We all cast our votes for President Buhari. He must not continue to be aloof. He must tell us where we are going in this country. The body language of the President shows that he is the President of the Fulani people.”
