Buhari begs Benue Leaders To Accommodate Fulani herdsmen ‘In The Name Of God’




President Muhammadu Buhari has appealed to the government and people of Benue State to exercise restraint following the recent attacks on some communities in the state.

The President, who asked the people to accommodate their countrymen, also assured them that all the perpetrators of violence in Benue would be made to face the wrath of the law.

He made the appeal on Monday while receiving a delegation of political leaders, traditional rulers and elders of the state led by Governor Samuel Ortom, at the Presidential Villa in Abuja.

“Your Excellency, the governor, and all the leaders here, I am appealing to you to try to restrain your people,” President Buhari said in a statement signed by his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Mr Femi Adesina.

“I assure you that the Police, the Department of State Security and other security agencies had been directed to ensure that all those behind the mayhem get punished.

“I ask you in the name of God to accommodate your countrymen. You can also be assured that I am just as worried, and concerned with the situation,” he said.
