Indigenes of Benue State resident in Lagos in their large number at the weekend staged a peaceful protest to the Lagos State House of Assembly over the incessant attack of the people of the state by suspected Fulani herdsmen.
The Benue indigenes brandished placards reading; “no more herdsmen,” “disarm all Fulani herdsmen,” and “PMB say something about the killing,” took their protest to the Assembly under the auspices of ‘Mdzough Tiv Lagos State’.
They  presented a protest letter on the issue to the Lawmaker for onward dispatch to President Muhammadu Buhari. The letter was co-signed by the association’s BOT Chairman, Chief Alfred Ubee, President, Hon. Kwaghbo, Co-ordinator, Ichul Wisdom and another Co- ordinator, Engineer Benjamin Kua.
In the letter, the protesters demanded the immediate evacuation of all Fulani herdsmen currently occupying the ancestral home of the people of the state in line with the directive of the Benue State Governor.
According to them, ‘the death of one man is our collective death. All bills/enactments pending at the National Assembly as well as the Benue State House of Assembly that are aimed at finding a permanent solution to these killings be given accelerated attention.
“They should be harmonized and passed into law with immediate effect. This should be done without unduly favouring any segment affected by such a bill/enactment.”
