Benue Killings: Buhari Writes Senate, Lists Steps Taken by iliyande(m): 2:20pm On Jan 31
President Muhammadu Buhari has written to the Senate saying the police are working to arrest those responsible for the recent killings in the state.

In a letter read by the Senate President, Bukola Saraki, on Wednesday, Mr. Buhari said the federal government was initiating measures to address the killings and other security challenges, alleviate their consequences and forestall reoccurrence.

The letter reads, “I thank you for your letter referenced NASS/8S/R/01/33 dated 18th January 2018 and carefully studied the resolutions and comments there in. As I briefed you and the RT. Hon speaker when we met, several courses of action have been taken prior to the senate resolution.

“You may recall that I told you of the following steps taken as soon as the information came in to me about the Benue killings.

“One, on Thursday 4th January, I sent the minister of interior and the deputy inspector-general of police in charge of operations for an on-the-spot assessment of the situation. Two, on Friday 5th January, the inspector-general of police briefed me verbally on the latest situation, calm had then been restored.

“Three, on Monday 8th, the minister of interior met with the following, governors of Adamawa, Kaduna, Niger, Benue Taraba and Nasarawa together with the DG of the State Security Services, inspector-general of police, CG civil defence, Minister of Agriculture and Rural Development and police commissioner of the six aforementioned states.

“After the meeting, I instructed the Minister of Interior to brief you on the information gathered so far and steps taken.

“On Tuesday, 9th of January, at a session with Governor Samuel Ortom of Benue state during which in informed of police arrests of some suspects. In addition, I told him that I have instructed to speed up trial of the suspects and give wide publicity of the police efforts.

“At the instance of the governor, a meeting was held in the presidential villa on 15th with a wide cross-section of Benue personalities and frank and open discussions were held. Everybody appreciated the difficulties of this farmers-herders strife. I assured all of my commitment and assured justice would be done.

“To infer therefore that nothing has been done, is incorrect. The police are strenuously working to apprehend the rest of the culprits of these heartless killings.

“Furthermore, I have instructed the IGP to relocate to Benue state and redeploy forces to the most sensitive towns. The federal government is initiating measures to address these and other security challenges, alleviate the consequence of these attacks and forestall reoccurrence. The senate resolution itemised in your letter would be taken into consideration and I’m instructing all relevant MDAs to factor them in their work.

“On December 19 to be precise, while receiving the report of the committee that was set up to review the technical and administrative structure of the NIA, I underscored the need to review the entire national security architecture as I promised in my inaugural address on the 29th May 2015. Action is being initiated to receive maximum cooperation from the senate in line with paragraph three of the senate resolutions.”

Buhari has been told what to do to save his face from embarrassment. But all his efforts are still too soft towards his fellow cattle rearers.

Religious and opinion leaders are fueling the conflict with their hate speech that tend to motivate violent actions on both sides. These utterances are further helped by activities of social media enthusiasts.

Muslims opinion leaders are largely responsible for the hate speeches. The speech of all Christian leaders I have heard so far are reactionary speeches. They spoke in reaction and did not in anyway inspire herdsmen to approach people's crop.

“I thank you for your letter referenced NASS/8S/R/01/33 dated 18th January 2018 and carefully studied the resolutions and comments there in. As I briefed you and the RT. Hon speaker when we met, several courses of action have been taken prior to the senate resolution.

- Please tabulate

“You may recall that I told you of the following steps taken as soon as the information came in to me about the Benue killings.

- Which forum?

“One, on Thursday 4th January, I sent the minister of interior and the deputy inspector-general of police in charge of operations for an on-the-spot assessment of the situation.

- Couldn't they use their initiatives? Must you instruct?

Two, on Friday 5th January, the inspector-general of police briefed me verbally on the latest situation, calm had then been restored.

- Simply delay tactics...why the oral briefing ?

“Three, on Monday 8th, the minister of interior met with the following, governors of Adamawa, Kaduna, Niger, Benue Taraba and Nasarawa together with the DG of the State Security Services, inspector-general of police, CG civil defence, Minister of Agriculture and Rural Development and police commissioner of the six aforementioned states.

- Nonsense meeting

“After the meeting, I instructed the Minister of Interior to brief you on the information gathered so far and steps taken.

- Too much briefing ...why?

“On Tuesday, 9th of January, at a session with Governor Samuel Ortom of Benue state during which in informed of police arrests of some suspects. In addition, I told him that I have instructed to speed up trial of the suspects and give wide publicity of the police efforts.

“At the instance of the governor, a meeting was held in the presidential villa on 15th with a wide cross-section of Benue personalities and frank and open discussions were held. Everybody appreciated the difficulties of this farmers-herders strife. I assured all of my commitment and assured justice would be done.

- Nonsense government...farmers - herders strife has been there since time immemorial...why not handle? angry angry

“To infer therefore that nothing has been done, is incorrect. The police are strenuously working to apprehend the rest of the culprits of these heartless killings.

- Nothing tangible has been done...just drinking tea and going through protocols to meet with you.
- When are you going there yourself?

“Furthermore, I have instructed the IGP to relocate to Benue state and redeploy forces to the most sensitive towns. The federal government is initiating measures to address these and other security challenges, alleviate the consequence of these attacks and forestall reoccurrence. The senate resolution itemised in your letter would be taken into consideration and I’m instructing all relevant MDAs to factor them in their work.

- Too late a directive

“On December 19 to be precise, while receiving the report of the committee that was set up to review the technical and administrative structure of the NIA, I underscored the need to review the entire national security architecture as I promised in my inaugural address on the 29th May 2015. Action is being initiated to receive maximum cooperation from the senate in line with paragraph three of the senate resolutions.”

- Nonsense , nonsense, actions on the part of the APC government under Buhari

So Buhari, if it is IPOB that has no guns and doesnt kill people, you will know that it is time for Pythons to dance.

But if it is your Fulani kinsmen, armed to teeth and killing people, thats when.........


“To infer therefore that nothing has been done, is incorrect. The police are strenuously working to apprehend the rest of the culprits of these heartless killings.

Bullshit talk. It took few days and Don wanny and his brother Obata Osu were killed. Crocodile smile was declared in the south south, python dance was started in the south east. What happened to sending the military to take the same action.
You asked the military command to relocate to Borno, has boko haram gone?
You asked the igp to relocate to Benue not only has he not moved but the killing have continued.

See what the IGP is doing grin grin grin

Sarrki & Omenkalives will not tackle the way Foolanis are killing Benue indigenes like they are flies.

Instead they spend their time abusing IPOB.

IPOB that simply does not want to be ruled by the Foolani, gives Sarrki & Omenkalives cause to insult.

Come and face ur Foolani masters , you won't. angry

Re: Benue Killings: Buhari Writes Senate, Lists Steps Taken by MrMoney007: 4:22pm On Jan 31
IPOB is a threat to Nigeria's unity and we the Federal Executive must crush them and their activities by fire by thunder. So we beg true Nigerians to provide our security agencies with IPOB's information/plans/
activities for proper action to be taken immediately! ....
But for Hausa/Fulani herdsmen killings, I plead to Nigerians Don’t Retaliate Fulani Herdsmen Killings, Pray For Them Instead; just as we the Federal Executive are praying hard now.

Lets be Honest.. these Guys are just too slow for our liking..

With the current trend in Nigeria.. we Need people that can chun out solutions even before the problem occurs..

We need proactive leaders and not these reactive mofos at the helm of affairs.. and that extends to Africa at large...

Else.. by 2050 Nigeria (Africa) would be recolonized..
