Benue Killings: No Decision Yet On Troops Deployment - FG by BeeBeeOoh(m): 4:55am On Jan 11
The Federal Government says there is no decision yet on troops' deployment to Benue State to stop the killings there.

The Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed, said this on Wednesday while addressing State House reporters after the Federal Executive Council meeting presided over by President Muhammadu Buhari.

He was responding to a question on why the government had not sent military troops to Benue State as done in some other troubled states.

The minister said such a decision would be taken after thorough deliberations on the matter.

He said the Federal Government was very concerned about the incident and was giving it utmost attention.

Mohammed stated: "As to who to send, that will be decided after thorough deliberations on the matter.
"On the second leg of your question is that government is very much concerned about the herdsmen and farmers clashes and it is receiving attention at the highest level."

Asked to explain what the establishment of cattle colonies proposed by the Federal Government as a way of ending herdsmen and farmers in states, the minister simply responded thus: "First of all, what’s the difference between a colony and a cattle ranch. I’m not an agricultural expert, but a colony is much bigger in nature than a ranche."

Also speaking, the Minister of State for Aviation, Hadi Sirika expressed belief that the government would not take any decision without recourse to farm land owners and the laws if the land.

"I’m not speaking as an agricultural expert, but perhaps, growing up in the hinterlands where I grew up, there used to be cattle routes, we call them “burtali” in local language, this was established by the federal government in 1914. It is a designated route where they follow, feed, graze, drink water. When that one was available, there was no farmer/herdsmen clash because the routes were specific, identified and mapped and were paid for compensation over times. But I think due to the development and increase in population, these routes were either captured or converted to farms.

"The question of colony or grazing land or whatever name they are called is about the same thing really. I don’t think government will do anything without recourse to owners of farm lands and laws of the land," Sirika said.

Even when they send troups they will send troupe of Fulani origin that will go there to romance the Fulani kiler herdsmen just to stop now and continue later.

Una go hear am
If govt deploy troops, na so dem go say, "The govt has sent backup to protect the rampaging herdsmen"

If govt send police, nas so them go scream "ehhn ehnn, now it is police you are sending, but sent Army to igbo land..."

Situations like these, nothing that you realy can do...
Bann the herdamen, then get police to arrest those doing open grazing, and the problem with will reduce a bit, or the herdsmen will now be fighting the police and not unarmed farmers

The troops are really needed in Benue state.

The case of illegal militias need urgent intervention.

Youths are carrying weapons in Benue state illegally and you saying no decision yet.
