Unknown Forces Outside North Responsible For Benue Killings – Justice Nasir

The Chairman, Advisory Council of the Ahmadu Bello Foundation, retired Justice Mamman Nasir has said the insecurity in Benue was created by some unknown forces that were not from the North.

He stated this yesterday at Government House, Makurdi when he came with the delegation of the foundation to pay a condolence visit on Governor Samuel Ortom on the death of over 73 persons murdered by suspected Fulani herdsmen.

He assured that northern leaders would find a solution that will solve the perennial clashes between herdsmen and communities in Benue.

“The insecurity in Benue is created by some unknown elements who are definitely not from the North. However, what is happening in Benue is very sad and should concern people of the north.

“We would do our best to restore peace and unity in the State and the North; because the solution to the problem still lies with northern elders,” he said.
