Herdsmen killing: Ortom rejects cattle colonies, supports military option

Ijaws accuse Buhari’s aide of inciting another ethnic crisis in Warri

Benue State Government, on Monday, declared three days of mourning for those killed in recent attacks on communities in Logo and Guma local government areas of the state.

Noting that soldiers were deployed against agents of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, Niger Delta militants among others, he said the hesitation to send soldiers after the heavily armed herdsmen stood truth in its head.

"The Aerial Surveillance by Police Helicopters will continue, while the Police Mobile Force Personnel, Police Special Forces and conventional Police Personnel, the Counter Terrorism Unit (CTU), Police Explosive Ordinance Department (EOD) and Special Police Joint Intelligence and Investigation Teams already deployed to Benue State will carry on un-relentlessly with the patrols and crime prevention activities in the affected areas to sustain the normalcy that have been restored in the State".

Speaking with Reuters, the Chief Press Secretary to the Benue State Governor, Terve Akase, attributed 71 deaths from December 31 to January 6 to killings by the Fulani.

"The commitment of the Nigeria Police Force to ensure Law and order and protection of lives and property of all Nigerians throughout the Country remains unequivocal and unwavering". "Who is now safe?", Ortom asked.

ABC News last interviewed Young in 2003, after the Space Shuttle Columbia accident that killed seven people. " Young flew twice to the Moon, walked on its surface & flew the first Space Shuttle mission".

One of the things I remember him tell me was that the only people who came close to making Nigeria a great country where everything works was the Buhari/Idiagbon regime as they paid back nearly all of Nigeria's foreign debt and those of us who were living in Lagos then, came very close to having 24-hours uninterrupted power supply daily.

In a statement, the Nigerian leader said he was prepared to permit every possible step that can lead to the stoppage of the killings.

Mr. Buhari has been accused of condoning the killings by Fulani herdsmen because of his ethnicity. The programme is not going to be cheap.

He said, "I never said I was not allowed to speak with Mr President".

Instantly, I knew I had found a hero, a mentor and a role model in my quest to see a better Nigeria during my lifetime. If it is harmful, we reform it. "Let us do our own duty by eliminating the conflict by creating cattle colonies", he said.
