Again, thousands of herders moving through Nassarawa to Benue


*Fears hit Benue state as Governor cries out.

*As Fears of another killings spree at almost same period last year creates panic.

Panic, palpable fears and tension seemed to be the words to describe the state of affairs in Benue state with some few days to the festive Xmas as stories of herders’ movement across Nasarawa state into Benue envelopes the state

Daily Watch findings in the state confirmed that as happened last year when several people of Benue State extraction were killed and massacred as a result of inflow of herders from Nassarawa who took over some parts of the state then apprehension is again high and at a boiling point following a new story that the herders are already since last week heading towards the same Benue state in their hundreds with the flocks.

Daily Watch investigations has it that the herders are said to be in several group[s and already in the border heading to the state with the state governor and his executive council also rising same fears on the herders coming in to the state just when the state government and Benue people are trying to rebuild their lives from the evil destructions of the past year.

While Daily Watch cannot confirm if the Nigerian Military or Police is aware of this new migration of the Herdsmen into Benue in spite of a Subsisting law banning their movement in the state, the Governor was on air days ago during one of the events in the state shouting himself to high heavens about the new development and fears of his people just weeks after a serving Senator from the state accused the state and the government of complicity in the massacre that pervaded the state.

Attempts by Daily Watch t reach the Military on the said movement to the state was not Possible but the Benue state Government spokesperson confirmed the movement as exposed by the Executive governor days ago and called on the Security to be alert as the state anti-grazing laws are still in observance in the state as such any flow of cattle or acts against the law must be dealt with legally by the law enforcement agents.
