Benue state governor, Samuel Ortom, says it is unfortunate that no herdsman has been arrested by security operatives since they started carrying out attacks on residents of the state. Governor Ortom said this in an interview with Channels TV;

“We have been appealing to the security agencies. We have been supporting them to ensure that they restore peace and order.

“It is unfortunate that up till today, there is no time that the security men came back to tell me that one arrest has been made against the herdsmen and their militia”.

Meanwhile, the Benue State Police Command says that it is deploying peace pact mechanism and the carrot approach to end the persistent armed herdsmen attacks on farming communities in the state.

The new Commissioner of Police, Mr Bashir Makama, disclosed this to reporters in Makurdi, the state capital in north-central Nigeria.

Mr Makama also informed journalists that his deployment briefs include ending the farmers and herdsmen crisis forthwith.

He urged opinion and community leaders to join the task of ensuring dialogue whenever there is a perceived grievance and not a resort to violence as a means of seeking justice.

11 local government areas in Benue state have come under sustained attacks by the herdsmen.
