The governor said the herdsmen were attacking communities because they wanted residents to “embark on reprisal” attacks.
Ortom spoke during an emergency stakeholders meeting in Makurdi, the state capital, yesterday.
The governor insisted that no amount of attacks will make the state repeal the anti-grazing law.
According to Ortom,“Because of the crisis, we are now faced with over 80,000 internally displaced persons, IDPs, in camps located at Daudu, Gbajimba, Utsav, Anyiin and Ugba.
“Let us continue to be firm. Let us continue to be law-abiding and not take the law into our hands or embark on reprisals. What we see happening now is deliberate.
“They want us to be angry and do their desire but we are not going to do their bidding. “No matter the intimidation, blackmail and name-calling there is no going back on the Benue grazing law because it is for the good of all, herdsmen and farmers alike.”
Recall that the governor had rained curses on those behind the killings perpetrated by Fulani herdsmen in the state.
