New Year killings: Benue declares 3-day mourning for victims, Thursday work

Buhari receives Ortom in his office

Speaking with state house correspondents at the end of a meeting with the president on Tuesday, Ortom said the situation grew from bad to worse as a result of "threat without action".

According to Yamu, the mobile policemen were members of a special security force deployed to Logo LGA following the herdsmen killings in the area.

A similar incident to what happened in Benue happened on the same day in Rivers State where some people coming from church were killed by suspected gunmen.

National police spokesman Jimoh Moshood said: "More units of the police special forces, counter-terrorism units, and conventional policemen had already been deployed to the state to comply in totality with the presidential order".

"The Force will not hesitate to deal decisively with trouble maker (s), any group (s) or individual for conduct likely to instigate the escalation of the crisis".

"The commitment of the Nigeria Police Force to ensure Law and order and protection of lives and property of all Nigerians throughout the Country remains unequivocal and unwavering".

In a statement, the Nigerian leader said he was prepared to permit every possible step that can lead to the stoppage of the killings.

Killings by herdsmen have been on the rise since New Year in Nigeria's Benue state, where relations between herdsmen and farmers remained tense, while other states including Kaduna, Kwara and Rivers have also recorded such killings. "Two of our men were killed and their rifles were taken away", he said.

"They must be arrested and prosecuted because we can not allow impunity to continue to thrive".

There have been calls for the president, who is also into cattle rearing, to speak up against killings by suspected herdsmen.

"We are talking of cattle colonies, not ranches, so to speak, where we will provide water, grass, training for herdsmen, cattle breeding and insemination".
