Benue Cancels Mass Burial, Prepares For Buhari’s Visit by DONSMITH123(m): 12:46pm On Mar 09, 2018
Benue State Government has cancelled the planned mass burial for victims of Fulani herdsmen attack in Okpokwu.

The government had promised to accord all the 24 victims of the Omusu Edimoga herdsmen attack a mass burial on Friday (today).

Governor Samuel Ortom made the announcement for the burial during his visit to Omusu Edimoga in Okpokwu Local Government Area of the state, where the attack took place on Monday, March 5, 2018.

The herdsmen were said to have invaded the community between 2pm and 3pm on the said day, following an earlier allegation that villagers had stolen some of their cattle.

Some children who were killed during the incident were said to be returning from school.

Twenty four persons were said to have been killed during the attack which left many people injured and several persons missing.

In a press statement issued by his Chief Press Secretary, Terver Akase, the governor said, “There wouldn’t be mass burial of victims of Fulani herdsmen attacks in Okpokwu.”

No reason was given for the cancellation of the mass burial

The statement added that the burial will now take place next week Thursday.

According to the statement, “A church service, followed by burial of the victims, will take place on Thursday, next week at Okpokwu.”

Meanwhile, Governor Samuel Ortom has announced that President Muhammad Buhari will be visiting the state on Monday.

Buhari is your president and commander in chief of Armed Forces of the federal republic of Nigeria. Ortom must be loyal to him

Cancelling mass burial because of a visit of a useless and senseless presidiot called muhaMADu poo-hari who doesn't give a hoot about the atrocities committed by his fellow senseless fulani cows in the same location he is visiting
