Muhammadu Buhari has vowed that the country’s security agencies are committed to bringing the perpetrators of the attacks that have led to the death of 71 people in Benue State to justice.
President Buhari tweeted on his official Twitter account (@MBuhari), “I just met with the Governor of Benue State. I assured Governor Ortom of our total commitment to the security of lives & property in Benue and elsewhere. We have deployed additional security resources to fish out the attackers, bring them to justice, and prevent further attacks.”
Since the attacks were revealed on January 2, Governor Ortom has publicly criticised the Federal Government a couple of times for allowing the attack to happen through negligence.
He said the state had notified the Federal Government of the threat of the herdsmen after they vowed to resist the anti-grazing bill which came into effect on November 1, 2017.
