Herdsmen attacks: Benue community threatens to fight back

24 May 2016, 16:41

Benue - Citizens of Idoma Land in Benue State, have threatened to carry arms and defend themselves against Fulani herdsmen if federal government fails to intervene, Vanguard reports.

The citizens operating on the aegis of One Idoma Initiative, warned that if nothing was done by the federal government to address the situation, the people might be forced to defend themselves.

The Leader of the group, Paul Edeh, who stated this at the Agatu Peace Concert organised in Abuja, said that the herdsmen were still occupying about four villages in Agatu land.

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.
