The Governor called on President Muhammadu Buhari to live up to his responsibility of protecting Nigerians.
 
He lamented that in the last two weeks, over seventy persons had been killed in Makurdi Local Government alone, while various communities across Benue were suffering from same militia herdsmen.
 
Ortom also called for urgent action against the activities of militia herdsmen across the country.
 
“If the Federal Government had taken the issue of militia herders seriously, it wouldn’t have escalated to this level,” he said.
