The Chief of Army Staff, Lt. Gen. Tukur Buratai has ordered criminals disguising as herdsmen to leave Benue immediately or face the consequences.
Buratai said this on Thursday at a cocktail party and command performance held in his honour at the Banquet Hall of Benue People’s House.
He said the Nigerian Army will do all in its power to ensure that total peace returns to Benue.
He also announced the posting of a new commander to head the new Brigade in the state.
“We will do our best to ensure that the prevailing peaceful atmosphere here is maintained”, Buratai said.
He said 4 commandants will supervise the provision of security in the state.
Buratai added, “Many serving and retired military officers from Benue State have been my mentors. I can tell you that the Special Adviser to Governor Samuel Ortom on Security Matters, Col. Edwin Jando (retd.), was the person who influenced my military career most.”
