Days after the New Year's Day attacks, another 15 people were reportedly killed in Tse Akombo, Tse Vii and Tse Agule communities in Logo local government area of Benue State, also by suspected herdsmen.

Fifty-nine of the deceased are slated for a mass burial in a village near the Air Force Base in Makurdi, the state capital, on Thursday morning.

"I just met with the Governor of Benue State".

"It is troubling that the Nigerian Army in collaboration with a few disgruntled and unscrupulous politicians in Rivers State and other parts of Biafraland, have taken it as a duty to expose our people, mostly our youths, to danger and unwarranted death, since the inception of this APC government led by Major General Muhammadu Buhari". Daniel Saror, Justice Utsaha and Chief John Anteyin representing the three senatorial zones of the state, all rejected the proposed cattle colony, insisting that ranching remained the only solution to herdsmen/farmers clashes in line with the global best practices. "It also observed the existing synergy between the security agencies and between the states and the Federal Government".

Kellyanne Conway: 'Nobody here talks about Hillary Clinton'
Prompting Cuomo to respond: "Says my friend who can't keep Hillary Clinton's name out of her mouth". Conway said, her words trailing off.

Police statement released by CSP Jimoh Moshood said Buhari ordered the IGP to relocate "to Benue State to restore law and order, prevent further loss of lives and forestall the crisis from escalating and spreading in the State".

He said: "I am expecting that the president will come but if he doesn't, then that means he is not treating us as friends".

"I do not know if it is a federal government law which should be domesticated in the states".

He said, "I never said I was not allowed to speak with Mr President". Yet, if past orders are anything to go by, it is doubtful if the herdsmen can be stopped, especially as the IG himself has already labelled what is happening as communal crisis.

He said police would not rest until the perpetrators of the killings were arrested.

"A group declared as the fourth deadliest terrorist group in the world as far back as 2015 can not be handled with levity by the Federal Government as being done presently and the earlier President Buhari is made to realise that his main duty is to protect the lives of all Nigerians, the better".

Authorities of the Benue State Police Command said the New Year's Day attacks began around 10 a.m.as Christians were at church worship services and lasted until 2 a.m. on January 2.

"We are conducting investigation into the killings and will take appropriate action against perpetrators of the heinous crime".
