Governor of Benue State, Samuel Ortom has stated that the violent attacks on residents of the state won’t make his administration repeal the ban on open grazing.

 

The governor while speaking during a media briefing, disclosed that the recent attacks has made him begin the process of recruiting responsible people of 50 years and below into the Volunteer Guards.

 

Insisting that they’ve cried enough, the Governor added that the duty of the Volunteer Guards is to support the conventional security agencies in defending their communities.

 

He said;

 

“A few weeks ago, Benue stakeholders met and gave this administration the mandate to activate and implement the Community Volunteer Guards Law enacted in 2000.

“We have already commenced the process of recruiting responsible people of 50 years and below into the Volunteer Guards.

“Their duty is to support the conventional security agencies in defending their communities. We have cried enough. We will cry no more. Now is time for action.

“Let me remind those who think that sustained attacks on the Benue people will force us to repeal the Open Grazing Prohibition and Ranches Establishment Law that they are making a mistake.

“This law has come to stay and no amount of intimidation can make us repeal it. Instead, we will soon amend the law in order to increase the penalties against offenders.”
