Politics aside.

This is very bad.

Does this mean there are no security/military personnel in Benue to protect lives and properties?

Before somebody will say it is Buhari's fault, since all fishes eat human flesh,but it is the Shark(Buhari) that takes the blame.

Go back and do the counting.

Under the PDP Government, Benue State was attacked an unbelievable 33 times.

Under the APC 13 times.

But even one attack anywhere in Nigeria, is an attack too many,and that is why Buratai have to move some troops to Benue to protect the people there from these marauding herdsmen.

I am first a Nigerian before anything,and that is why I pray President Buhari should look into the Menace of these Herdsmen.

In as much I call the government to intervene

The crises within Fulani and Tiv started long ago

Fulani's are nomadic in nature while Tivs are farmers

So there will always be crises
''The Tiv and Fulani should never fight. At least not go to war. They are blood cousins. According to Tiv chronicles, the Tiv, (a Proto-Bantu ethnic group) came in contact with the Fulani around the 16th or 17th century as they migrated into Nigeria. The Tiv established farms and kept their own cattle (Muturu) that were restricted around the Tiv homes. The Fulani on the other hand were nomadic herdsmen. They had a symbiotic relationship, as the Tiv produced food for the Fulanis while the Fulani served as standing army to defend the Tiv against invading tribes. Over time they intermarries and considered themselves inseperable.'

Tiv and Fulani parted ways over the Tiv complaints that the larger populated Fulani were marrying all Tiv daughters, leaving the Tiv with fewer daughters to propagate their own identity and group. They agreed to part as friends and cousins. The Tiv called the Fulani Upul, and the Fulani called the Tiv “Munchi” the nickname they gave the Tiv after an incident involving a Fulani household. The Fulani men had gone south with their cattle during the dry season to pasture. After several months they returned home to find the women they had left behind under Tiv supervision pregnant. When the Fulani met his Tiv cousins they admitted that they indeed were responsible. ’Munchi’ they admitted. Since that time, the nickname Munchi has been the favourite joking nickname that the Fulani gave to the Tiv. In agreeing to part as friends, the Tiv and Fulani elders made a treaty to live in peace as cousins. This treaty has been observed on both sides with great care. It is encoded in Tiv and Fulani social rituals.......

The crisis started on 23rd June, 2001. Mr Iortim Umande, an unarmed Tiv farmer found Fulani cattle eating up his crops. When he tried to drive the cattle out of his farm, the Fulani took out his sword and killed him.''
