THE INCESSANT ATTACKS ON BENUE FARMERS: EKITI STATE STEP IS THE BEST SOLUTION - TERSOO

Share This


            Parts of Benue state, particularly Tiv speaking areas of Buruku, Hon. Orker Jev's local govt, Guma, Gov. Samuel Ortom's local govt, Tarka, Senator George Akume's local govt and others from where some leaders hail from, have again come under attack by killer herdsmen. It was a night of sorrow following reports on the fresh attacks with gory pictures of mutilated bodies. It appears little or nothing concrete is being done to stop the senseless killings of the farmers.

            I will not be wrong to accuse the political class for not doing the needful in arresting this heinous act. Often times, we have been assured of peace after series of pretentious peace talks between Benue state govt and neighbouring states like Nasarawa and Taraba where the dastardly acts are reported to originate from.

            With all sense of humility and responsibility, I want to observe that, the Ortom led administration has not demonstrated sincere commitment to ending these killings. My reason is not far fetched. What has happened to the Open Grazing (Prohibition) Bill before the state Assembly? If I am correct, Benue state started work on such a bill before Ekiti state.

            Today, it is a law in that state. Since then, no herdsmen attack has been reported in that state. Is the administration more interested in political victories and relevance than saving a nation? Why were other places attacked, heard of more than the areas mentioned above even as the attacks have been recurring? Invasion does not stop at the poor man's territory. It captures targeted areas including big man's area. Just a matter of time, if not checked. My heart bleeds.
