Inter-boundary Killings: Benue Appeases Ebonyi With N2m by murphyibiam15(m): 7:32am On Oct 25, 2018
The Government of Benue State has given an appeasement donation of N2 million to the Ebonyi State Government over the recent killing of over six Ebonyians by the Benue people in inter- boundary dispute.

The Benue State Deputy Governor, Benson Abounu, who represented Governor Samuel Ortom, delivered the amount when he led a high powered delegation to Ebonyi State Government House, Abakaliki on Wednesday to condole with the State over the unfortunate incident.

Confirming the development to newsmen at the end of Wednesday’s State Executive Council meeting, the Ebonyi State Commissioner for Border Peace and Conflict Resolution, Sunday Inyima, explained that the said amount was donated to augment the State’s assistance towards resettlement of the affected families.

Inyima noted that since the beginning of the dispute over 98 years ago, the visit was the first time the Benue State Government has shown great concern over the recurrent loss of lives often recorded along the borders and attributed the development to Governor David Umahi’s approach to crises management.

Inyima, who said the delegation was received by the Deputy Governor of Ebonyi State, Eric Kelechi Igwe, also confirmed that the two parties held brief closed door discussions where far reaching resolutions were reached prior to a comprehensive peace meeting to be held at Abuja on October 29.

Inyima Said: “Let me inform the press and the general public that today, Ebonyi State Government received in audience a very high powered delegation from Benue State led by no less a person the Deputy Governor of that State.

“Their mission in Ebonyi State was to condole with the people of Ebonyi over the gruesome killing of Ebonyi indigenes at the Ohaukwu axis, particularly Ngbo communities of Ukwuagba, Ekwashi and Umuogudu Akpu, where six Ebonyi indigenes were gruesomely murdered under the name of communal inter-state boundary clash.

“It may please you to note that this issue of our boundary problem with Benue State is a thing that has actually lasted for a very long time, dating down to the 1920s.

“But it will also be good to note that since that time to this particular date, there has never been a day that the Benue State Government sent a delegation to come and condole with the people of Ebonyi State.

“May be it is the first time since the inception of that crises.

“On their visit, they brought with them the sum of N2 million, which the Government of Benue State said should be handed over through the Local Government Chairman of Ohaukwu to the individual families that lost their great sons and daughters.

“We met with them in the office of the Deputy Governor and we also agreed and made some resolutions in an informal private discussion with them, which was signed.

“By Monday next week, 29th of October to be precise, we are going to meet with them and the National Boundary Commission Chairman at Abuja to further discussions on this matter, and we are believing that some of the salient issues that we raised today are actually going to help us in the discussion we are going to have in Abuja.

“All these are geared towards ensuring that lasting peace is brought to bear, especially with regards to our borders with Benue State and indeed that with Cross River State.”

Recall that six persons from Ohaukwu Local Government Area of Ebonyi State were last week murdered by some people from Benue State in an alleged unprovoked inter-border attack.

It's not fair by any standard for Benue state to imply that
the worth of an Ebonyi life is 333,333NGN

I know I may have reservations about Ebonyi state.
But this here, beats all of my prejudice.

So benue indigenes have this level of blood lust but cannot fight off the fulanis for years.

I feel stupid for ever having empathy towards the benuians that got slaughtered during the Fulani raids

It is not about the money, it's about the great concern shown. If Buhari has been this pragmatic, accepting responsibility for the havoc his Fulani people have been causing Nigerians, we wouldn't be where we are today.

You won’t see Igbo running rampage condemning Ortom for supervising the killing of Christians here and paying cash for their lives but go to the thread concerning Kaduna and see yeasterners whose life is riddled with irredeemable hate from birth claim El rufia was on the battlefield leading Muslims n pointing Christians to be killed. That is how pathetic an entire tribe can be yet they claim Hausa Fulani Yoruba Ikwerre Malaysians Chinese South Africans Arabs hate them. Bunch of nitwits.

Seriously I don't see the reason why Benue state will be fighting with their sister state ebonyi....


They should learn to live as one coz they are same both in blood, relationship, inter marriages, mutual relationship and everything deem fit for brothers and sisters.


Whatever pain Ebonyi is passing through has effect on Benue state annd vice versa.



Ebonyi and Benue are brothers.....live as one.

They should learn to live as one.

smiley smileyWant Your Website To Be Safe As A Bank Vault In A Military Barracks? Get Web Maintenance NOW! smiley smiley
Do you have a business website, E-commerce, Multi-level Marketing Website, Web Blog or other types of brand website and you want it maintained regularly and professionally while you focus on your business?
Many business owners believe that by establishing a business website,they are done. But having a business website is only the beginning. One of the biggest mistakes business owners make is to believe that once their website is up and running, it can take care of itself. Regardless of how technically advanced your new or existing business website is it needs to be updated and maintained on a regular basis. And this is why your business needs a website maintenance plan.

Look at it this way. When you buy a new car you plan on keeping it well maintained with regular oil changes, tire rotation, etc. A business website is very similar and also needs to have regular maintenance. By not having a website maintenance plan your business website will deteriorate and become less useful over time. If you have outdated content, broken links or links that redirect to unrelated pages, your customers will get frustrated and go to your competitors’ better maintained website.

Why maintain a website?

 Constantly check bugs, errors, missing links etc
 update latest data to make the site and business grow effectively
 Help troubleshooting time
 Periodical review of traffic statistics and hits to the website
 Help improve search engines and page ranking

The peace offering is just a token. They're not paying for the lives. We need to learn to think outside the box. Too many alarmists and illiterates on this forum.

The other day people were chiding a security guard for returning a lost bag of dollars because he didn't receive up to 10% of the total value in appreciation of his kindness. Money isn't everything
