Fulani herdsmen 'still control four Agatu villages'

23 May 2016, 07:34

Abuja - A group has raised the alarm over territories controlled by Fulani herdsmen, claiming that some villages in Agatu are still being occupied by them.

According to a Naij report, Paul Edeh, leader of the Idoma Initiative, made his utterances during a concert organized by the group in support of Agatu communities.

The concert, which was held in Federal capital Territory (FCT), featured popular musicians 2face and Terry G, while functioning to peace for the people of Agatu.

Edeh called on Government to intervene in the situation, while berating Benue Governor Samuel Ortom for his perceived lack of concern at the large extent of killings in the state, Today reports.

Edeh has since warned the Federal Government over its lack of action, claiming that should the scourge of Fulani herdsmen continue, people might take the law into their own hands in a bid to defend themselves.
