ORTOM BEGS FG TO CHECK ILLEGAL ENTRY OF HERDSMEN INTO NIGERIA

Governor Samuel Ortom of Benue State has appealed the Federal Government to check the illegal entry of Foreign Herdsmen into Nigeria.

He claimed that the illegal herdsmen attack Nigerians, especially Farmers.

Governor Ortom made the appeal when he visited one Mrs Wanhena Cheku, a victim of herders attack, now recuperating at the Federal Medical Centre at Apir in Makurdi.

Reports say Cheku’s left hand was cut off in an attack on her farm at Mbagwem Community in the Guma Local Government Area of the State.

The Governor said it was wrong for Foreign Herders to gain free entry into the Country and perpetrate atrocities at will.
