He recently revealed this while speaking at the end of an emergency State Security Council meeting held in Makurdi, and Nigerians have been reacting.
According to him, Benue residents should remain calm and await the outcome of the investigation being carried out by the Police as directed by the Inspector General of Police, IGP.
He then hailed the Presidency, the Inspector General of Police, IGP, as well as the array of groups including Nigeria Governors’ Forum, PDP Governors’ Forum, APC Governors’ Forum, National leadership of PDP and APC, the media, the traditional institution and Christians, as well as all Nigerians for their show of concern after the incident.
His words, “I urge Benue people to be calm because the matter is being investigated and we hope that those behind the attack would be apprehended and prosecuted.”
“I also plead with us not to politicize the incident because doing so would not be in the interest of anyone.”
“I have nothing against anyone or any group, all I am after is fairness, justice and protection of the rights, wishes and aspirations of the people who voted me to power.”
“The Benue Grazing Law is not targeted at anyone, Benue people wanted it and they are happy with it.”
“Moreover, it has brought relative peace to our state, so why would anyone kick against it?”
“Let’s all learn to do the right things to save our country from unnecessary crisis that endangers our unity and peace as a country.”
