Second class traditional rulers from the 14 local government areas of Tiv extraction in Benue State have raised the alarm over alleged plans by Fulani herdsmen to eliminate the Tiv people from both Benue, Nasarawa and Taraba States.

The traditional rulers made the allegations on Tuesday during a courtesy visit on Governor Samuel Ortom at the Benue Peoples House Makurdi, the state capital.

They also called on the Federal Government to immediately take necessary actions to ensure that displaced Tiv people who are currently at different IDP camps in the state, return to their ancestral homes.

Chief Daniel Abomtse, a spokesman for the group, alleged that the Tiv people are constantly being “chased away from their ancestral homes in those states”, stressing that their homes and farmlands are been controlled by “herdsmen of Fulani nationality with the approval of authorities in those states.”

The traditional leaders appealed to President Muhammadu Buhari to put in place the necessary measures that would ensure the return of displaced Tiv people and the recovery of their land from invaders.

Governor Ortom while appreciating them for the visit, lamented the incessant killings in Benue by militia herdsmen, stressing that the injustice perpetrated by the “Federal Government to some parts of the country is uncalled for”.

The governor noted that already, the continued stay of over 1.5 million people in IDP camps had led to a food crisis in Benue, pointing out that he has no reason to be quiet as some people expect him to be.
