Sending Fulani Herdsmen to Attack Us won’t make me repeal the anti-grazing law – Governor Ortom
Governor Samuel Ortom has said that the violent attacks against residents of Benue state by Fulani Herdsmen won’t make his administration repeal the anti-grazing law.
Governor who spoke during a media parley disclosed that the recent attacks have made him commence the process of recruiting responsible people of 50 years and below into the Volunteer Guards.
Insisting that they’ve cried enough, the Governor added that the Volunteer Guards must support the conventional security agencies in defending their communities.
“A few weeks ago, Benue stakeholders met and gave this administration the mandate to activate and implement the Community Volunteer Guards Law enacted in 2000.
“We have already commenced the process of recruiting responsible people of 50 years and below into the Volunteer Guards.
“They must support the conventional security agencies in defending their communities. We have cried enough. We will cry no more. Now is the time for action.
“Let me remind those who think that sustained attacks on the Benue people will force us to repeal the Open Grazing Prohibition and Ranches Establishment Law that they are making a mistake.
“This law has come to stay and no amount of intimidation can make us repeal it. Instead, we will soon amend the law to increase the penalties against offenders.”
