Citizens of Benue State have stormed Abuja, the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) to protest the killings recently perpetrated by Fulani herdsmen in the state.

The protesters, young and old stormed the FCT with different inscriptions on their placards.

One of the placards read: “This is an invasion, not communal crisis”; “Mr President has a ranch, why not others?”; “War on Benue, enough of this bloodshed”; “We stand by Benue State Anti-Open Grazing”; “No land for colonies”; “Security services wake up; it is a shame that government cannot protect innocent citizens”; as well as “We no go free, Buhari and Benue people denounce the barbaric killings of Benue citizens”.

The spokesperson, Honourable Rebecca Apezan, while speaking with journalists lamented that their people were gruesomely murdered like chickens and goats, while President Muhammadu Buhari remained in Abuja and not paying a condolence visit to the state.
