PRESS RELEASE: APC Condemns Continued attacks on Agatu

The All Progressives Congress (APC), Benue State Chapter has in a strong term condemned the continued attacks on the good people of Agatu by fulani herdsmen using helicopter to supply food and ammunition to their militia, setting completely four additional villages ablaze.
The herdsmen who were seen yesterday with helicopter hovering around Agatu area have set ablaze Akwu, Adagbo, Aila, Ugboju in addition to Okokolo and Abugbe which were earlier set ablaze.
This act of violence is barbaric, highly condemnable, heartless and uncalled for.
We call on both Benue and Nasarawa as well as Federal governments to come to the aid of Agatu people and arrest the situation once and for all, since this is detrimental to the progress of Benue State and Nigeria as a whole.
Apart from the fact that over one thousand persons lost their lives in this crisis in Agatu, the people of Agatu are currently homeless due to the crisis situation and needs urgent attention.
John Ikwulono
State Director of Publicity, APC.
