Governor Samuel Ortom of Benue state has revealed that four persons have been killed in fresh attacks by suspected armed herdsmen on innocent people in Logo and Guma Local Government Areas of the state.

Ortom disclosed this on Wednesday at the Benue Peoples House Makurdi when he received former military administrator of the State, retired Brigadier-General Dominic Oneya who led a delegation of his Foundation on a condolence visit to the Governor.

Ortom said two women had been reportedly killed in Guma while two other persons were killed in Logo, stressing that pockets of killings were still going on.

He reiterated his call on security agents to arrest the leadership of Miyetti Allah Kautal Hore whom he said are still issuing threats against the implementation of the Open Grazing Prohibition and Ranches Establishment Law in the state.

The Governor expressed appreciation to General Oneya for identifying with people of the State in their trying moment, stressing that it was a demonstration of a true friend.

Earlier, retired Brigadier-General Oneya said his mission was to commiserate with the Governor and Benue people over the gruesome murder of 73 persons by herdsmen.

He stated that as the last military administrator of the state who handed over to former Governor George Akume, he considers the state as his home and would always identify with it in good and difficult times.
