Useni blamed the persistent crisis between herders and farmers in Benue State on criminal elements.

He also called on both governors to come up with plans on how to resolve the crisis at the border areas between both states.

According to Useni, ensuring peace would bring about development in both states.

Useni said: “We the members of MACBAN will assist to see that there is peace. Any good leader will not like problem or crisis. We are supporting the governors so that they will bring developments to our people.

“We urge them to look for a way so that we solve this problem in the border areas. I am going to bring a solution and by the grace of God we will have peace in the border areas of Nasarawa and Benue States.

“We know that there were lots of killings last week and upper week especially in the borders communities. We are accusing the criminal elements for being responsible for this.”
