The secretary-general, Miyetti Kautal, Saleh Alhassan has spoken on recent killings in Benue state

- Alhassa said he has always insisted that governor Samuel Ortom is on a voyage of propaganda against the association

- He said the recent arrest of the commander of the Benue state Livestock Guards, Aliyu Teshaku, has vindicated the association

The secretary-general, Miyetti Kautal, Saleh Alhassan, Monday, July 2, demanded an apology from the Benue state government for linking the association to the attacks and killings in the state.

Alhassan made the demand during his appearance on Channels Television’s breakfast show.

According to Alhassan, “the recent arrest of the commander of the Benue state Livestock Guards, Aliyu Teshaku, has vindicated the association.

“Today, they have arrested Aliyu Teshaku who is alleged to be the Head of the Livestock Guard in Benue who is behind those killings. He is arrested now.

“People that killed the two clergymen and 17 others in the church are being tried in Makurdi and they are all Tiv people. And they are all members of the livestock guard working for governor Ortom.

“So we expect by now there should be an apology from the Benue state government to our association because we have never promoted violence. We have always advocated for a peaceful resolution of the crisis.”

Apart from linking Tiv people to the attack on the Catholic church in Benue state that left two priests and 17 other worshippers dead, Alhassan accused the state government of propaganda against the association.

He said: “I have always insisted that governor Samuel Ortom is on a voyage of propaganda against our association.

“And today, if you look at the arrest made in Benue, with respect to the perpetrators of the conflict there, you look at their ethnicity and background and you look at who is employing them, we have been vindicated.”

Meanwhile, we had reported Senator president Bukola Saraki and governor Aminu Tambuwal of Sokoto state demanded for an immediate removal of security chiefs to allow for fresh and innovative ideas on how to protect the nation.

Tambuwal and Saraki Tambuwal made this known while declaring open the National Executive Council, (NEC) meeting of the Nigeria Union of Journalists (NUJ) holding in Sokoto state.

The governor noted that there was no need retaining security heads that could not find solution to perennial security challenges in the country.
