Legendary singer, 2face Idibia, yesterday January 17th, paid a condolence visit to his state Governor, Samuel Ortom of Benue state, over the recent herdsmen killings in the state. Last Thursday January 11th, 75 persons that were killed during an attack by suspected herdsmen, were given a mass burial.

No fewer than 5000 Benue indigenes have lost their lives with unquantified property destroyed by Fulani marauders in the last 6 years.

In February, 2016, the Fulani herdsmen hit Akwu, Aila and other villages in Agatu local government, killing 230 farmers in a day, the number later rose to 500 within 2 weeks.

Most recently, the people of Guma and Logo local government areas woke up to the news of the mindless killings of their people on Monday, 1st January, 2018, where over 80 people were said to have lost their lives.

However, about 73 bodies were recovered and given mass burial at the state capital, Makurdi, last week.

While the National Assembly is currently debating on the state of insecurity and proffering a national summit on security, the Fulani Militia struck again on Wednesday, killing at least five persons.
