Mr. Idris said the police would deploy helicopter surveillance to monitor the movement of such miscreants across the state and pledged to be diligent in discharging the presidential assignment.

Thursday has been declared a work-free day in Benue to enable workers to attend the funeral of the victims, according to a statement by the government.

Have you read Trendiee Today? There is no household that you go to in Tiv land that you will not find a soldier who fought for this country. Even as governor, most times, I am not with my phone; people can not access me the way it used to be, talk less of a President.

Similarly, the Rights group has carpeted Federal government functionaries for contemplating the deployment of public resources to promote private businesses of cattle rearing by establishing the illegal cattle colonies in parts of Nigeria. If they have the magic, we wish them well. In the wake of the attacks, Ortom also called for the arrest of the leadership of Miyetti Allah Kautal Hore.

"We are certain that Aso Rock merely ordered the IG of Police to relocate the police headquarters in Abuja to Benue to provide cover for these murderous Fulani herdsmen and help them consolidate their hold on new territories they are now occupying".

The Presidency yesterday absolved President Muhammadu Buhari of killings related with Fulani herdsmen, stressing that in two years over 756 people were killed by same herdsmen under former President Goodluck Jonathan. The truth is that I have access to Mr. President anytime I want.

In a statement personally signed by him and obtained by Channels Television, Professor Soyinka warned President Muhammadu Buhari to learn from history and stop treating the ravaging herdsmen with kid gloves.

The executive secretary of the Agency, Emmanuel Shior, added that the killings had displaced thousands of people in the districts of Guma and Logo, who now seek refuge in four camps, although he warned that the attacks have not stopped.

"Our economy in Benue State depends on agriculture", he said.

"As you can see all the governors of the states where we have the most challenging security problem are here".

"The law on prohibition of Open Grazing and Establishment of Ranching was made out of the necessity to ensure that we have peace for herdsmen and farmers and that is what we have done".

In an attempt to put an end to the atrocious killings in Benue and other states by suspected Fulani herdsmen and the growing backlashes that have stemmed out from it, the Nigerian government has reportedly placed a ban on open grazing of cattle in the country.
