Benue Killings: Herdsmen Agree To Cease Fire by nwakibie3(m): 8:27am On Feb 14
By Peter Duru

MAKURDI—Peace may finally return to Benue State as herdsmen attacking parts of the state have agreed to lay down their arms and abide by the provisions of the Benue Open Grazing Prohibition Law.

They, however, asked for more time to help them adapt to the new policy as well as resort to grazing in the grazing reserves already developed in the Northern parts of the country.

This position was reached at the end of the meeting by the herdsmen, stakeholders and governors of Benue and Nasarawa states with members of Technical Sub Committee of National Economic Council Committee mediating in the herdsmen and farmers crisis in Benue, Nasarawa, Adamawa and Taraba states, headed by Governor Dave Umahi of Ebonyi State.

Addressing the media,yesterday, at the end of its assignment in Makurdi, chairman of the committee, Governor Umahi said the team had successful meetings with all the parties in Benue and Nasarawa states. Reeling out the decisions reached at the end of the mediation talks, Governor Umahi said: “We observed that all the parties are willing to make peace and we are looking at the conditions and suggestions of the various groups handed over to us as the way forward to having peace.

“From discussions, it was agreed by the parties that Benue State has the right to make laws and that individuals or group of people that are in the state have a duty to obey the law.

“They also have a duty to meet with the authorities of the law to dialogue on any section of the law that they believe will not favour them. “We have agreed, from all parties to this unfortunate matter, that we will pursue peace, disarm any group that is harbouring militia and support the security chiefs to arrest anyone found with illegal weapons.

“The security people have also vowed that inline with the directive they have, anybody with illegal weapon must be arrested, no matter who the person is. “The cheering news is that the herdsmen in Benue and Nasarawa states are willing to abide by the Open Grazing Prohibition Law of Benue State but they would need more time for ranching and support from the Federal Government to move into grazing reserves.”

Instead of finding way to bring the murderers to book, this EVIL government is negotiating with TERRORISTS and the FOOL called Umahi has decided to be a willing tool for the SATANIC caliphate.
I seriously doubt if Umahi is Igbo.

After killing hundreds of Nigerians they are still giving conditions?

And fulani leaders including Buhari have been claiming these guys aren't Nigerians nor criminals / terrorists but here again they've own up to the killings.

It shall not be well with those terrorist leaders, security chiefs and others supporting these Fulani terrorists militia herdsmen.

Fulani Herdsmen are not Nigerians------says FG.

Fulani herdsmen are not responsible for the killings in Benue------says FG

Fulani herdsmen have agreed to cease fire-------says FG.

This government is being openly nepotistic and biased ,playing politics with human lives.

So,now that they have been begged to stop killing,there crime will be swept under the carpet?

No justice for those killed?

Trust the Buhari government to deny subsequent attacks by Fulani herdsmen ,they will say that they have laid down their arms.


Umahi needs to do DNA test asap,he is a pawn to the Fulani caliphate,he may not be Igbo.

WELCOME TO FULANI REPUBLIC OF NIGERIA.

THE LAND OF THE RISING SUN MUST SET FORTH AT DAWN

But, some never-do-well here told us that these people are not Herdsmen, that Herdsmen are peace loving people who don't hurt a fly.


So I ask, which faction of the Herder's agreed to cease fire?

It is obvious that many people here don't like to read the news of peace. It is like they want killings to continue so that they can play politics with it.
