Mass burial for New Year's attack victims

Mass burial for New Year's attack victims

"Whilst the armed Fulani herdsmen are engaging in coordinated violence across many States and carrying out ethnic genocides, armed security forces are busy arresting the families of the victims who have mobilised themselves to stop further attacks since the heads of security forces are siding the suspected armed Fulani herdsmen".

The Tor Tiv said this on Thursday in Makurdi during the requiem mass for the mass burial of 73 people killed by herdsmen on Jan.1 in Guma and Logo local government councils.

The Leadership newspaper said the Federal Government has given explanations for the establishment of cattle colonies as against the nomadic structure now going on.

The Nation newspaper said the President of Dangote Industries, Alhaji Aliko Dangote, remains Africa's richest with a net worth of $12.2 billion, according to Forbes.

He said, "I am telling Nigerians that my people can not continue to be cannon fodder for this country".

"Members of the Civilian JTF received weapons from the state governor Governor Ortom and his aides replenish ammunitions for these firearms whenever they are depleted "Members of the Civilian JTF had no prior training in the use of firearms but have been promised training by the state government".

Benue conducts mass burial for victims of Fulani herdsmen attack

"If the Federal Government can not stop or arrest those behind the killings; in two weeks, we shall raise an army of our own". Gen. Lawrence Onoja (retd.), said the killings are genocidal conspiracy against the Benue people. "If the Federal Governmrnt refuses to address the killings in Benue and if we decide to raise our army as advocated by our elders to defend ourselves, l will not mind to command that army despite my age".

The National Chairman of the group, Honourable Kassim Mohammad Kassim, who briefed newsmen in Owerri, Imo State, declared that the comments of the Ekiti State Governor on the herdsmen killings and other national security issues were inciting and unbecoming of a leader.

He urged sons and daughters of the state to rally round the governor for the successful enforcement of the anti-open grazing law. We pray for the repose if the innocent souls.

The paramount ruler enjoined Ortom to continue to do the needful in his bid to bring peace to the state, saying the Benue traditional rulers were behind the governor.

"The essence of the briefing is, therefore, to call on the Federal Government to immediately declare a State of Emergency in Taraba State and any other state where the governor as the Chief Security Officer willfully allows the security situation to degenerate to the point where mass murder is committed".

He said the suggestions were not acceptable to the Benue people.
