Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) from the Abagana camp have blocked the Markurdi-Lafia Federal Highway protesting the recent killings by herdsmen and laying the corpses of the victims on the road.

The suspected herdsmen on Tuesday morning invaded Abagana IDP camp killing seven persons and injuring about 15 of them.

According to an eyewitness account present at the protest, the armed herdsmen stormed the host community heading to the IDP camp and started shooting at the people killing seven and leaving many others injured.

The eyewitness warned that they will resort to arms to defend themselves if the Federal Government does not intervene.

The Benue State Governor, Samuel Ortom during a visit to the scene of the protest challenged President Muhammadu Buhari to rise up to the defence of vulnerable rural farming communities and Internally Displaced Persons.

The Governor also asked the President to allow them to acquire weapons to fight armed Fulani herdsmen following the attack on the camp.

“You have all seen what is happening within the last two weeks. We have lost over 70 people in Guma, Makurdi, and Gwer West LGAs alone, in addition to what you have seen here.

“Many are in the hospital apart from the seven that were killed. But I want to say that our patience is being overstretched in spite of our preaching of rule of law and due process. You can see that the people are fed up.’’ he said.

He further asked the President to convene a National Security Summit to get the true picture of the killings allegedly attributed to the bandit.

“Mr President must rise up; he is the President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria. He has taken oath of office to secure and protect lives and property.

“This (attack) is not acceptable, this cannot continue. Mr President must rise up and address the nation.

“My colleagues, the governors must rise and impress on the President to call a security submit, if possible to declare a state of emergency on security so that all hands will be on deck to address the situation in the country,’’ he said.

Dear Nairalanders,


For some weeks now, sad news have been hitting the front-page of this forum unceasingly and it seems the Buhari-led administration is having the time of their lives seeing Nigerians suffer and die like chickens.

We never had it this bad under the administration of Goodluck Jonathan, but some moroniic Efulefu's here choose to destroy the image of a good man and foolishly enthroned an unrepentant terrorist as President.


If this country nor separate anytime from now, please endeavor to reject anything called APC.


It shall never be well with any fool who's in support of this government.

Until the north attacks Abuja and start with Aso rock and the senate, these scums ruling us don’t care. Even if bandits like,they can attack children hospital and cut off the babies head—Buhari will still go for his medical check up and sleep with his new young wife. The buhari government doesn’t care! It’s a wonderfully useless and criminal and bloody regime

When the foundation is faulty, what can the righteous do? This Buhari rode on the back of massive bloodshed to get to power, now, they are getting it in 5 folds. angry

I mentioned back then that we are setting a bad precedent...that subsequently, if it succeeded back then, politicians will keep using it to get to power.

Obviously, Buhari (the greatest mistake we've made as a nation since forever) is very very clueless about governance, as the downhill fall of Nigeria have shown in all sectors...but I feel there are some people pumping money into this nationwide violence to create room for their accession to the throne.

I may be wrong though, but I have a strong gut feeling about this. Why is it that killings hike whenever we are close to electioneering periods? It can't be a coincidence

Nigeria was never meant to be.

A mistake done many decades ago is what we are all seeing.

I'm tired of this country.

Over 500 violent deaths in a month in one country and that's just the one we see in the news.
