Reports reaching 9news Nigeria indicate that there is currently a heavy tension in Benue State after soldiers following Governor Ortom opened fire at an unarmed protesters, injuring many.
According to an eyewitness who shared the story said…
”Today we’ve confirmed the apparent inability of the government and it’s security agencies in coming the aid of Benue people who have been slaughtered, butchered, murdered in the most gruesome manner by the Fulani herdsmen.
Instead of using the guns on the Fulani herdsmen for the protection of the Benue people, the government and it’s agencies prefers to use same on the unarmed people of Benue. Some citizens who came out to register their grievances over the gruesome murder of the innocent people of Benue. Even as I post, there are shootings of live bullets at the unarmed protesters in Makurdi by the combined team of Airforce, Army, Navy, Police, NSCDC, BSVG, SSS and the rest… May God come to our aid.”
