Meanwhile, the Christian Association of Nigeria, Benue State chapter, accused the Presidency of prolonged silence over the killings of Benue citizens by Fulani herdsmen.
Its chairman Reverend Akpen Leva told reporters after meeting with Governor Ortom yesterday at the Benue Peoples House, that President Muhammadu Buhari should protect Benue people from the militia.
The CAN chairman said they had organised a three-day prayer and fasting for all Christians to seek God’s intervention in the matter, saying as a Christian State, Benue would resort to praying to God.
House of Assembly Speaker Terkimbi Ikyange blamed the killings on the inability of the Federal Government to take threats by the Cattle Breeders Association serious.
Ikyange described the attack as barbaric and an insult on the rule of law, stressing that the resolve of Benue people to stop open grazing is steadfast.
