Benue State Security Council has given a two-week ultimatum to people operating Open Grazing within the state to comply with the State’s Open Grazing Prohibition and Ranches Law.

They also called on herders/invaders to immediately leave the state and return to where they came from, warning those who invited them to immediately desist from the act.

These were part of the resolutions reached at the end of the State Security Council Meeting held at the Benue State Government House, Makurdi, on Tuesday.


Briefing newsmen shortly after the meeting, the Chief Press Secretary to the Governor, Sir Tersoo Kula, said the Council also constituted a seven-man committee to ensure the enforcement of the ultimatum, which began on Wednesday.

Kula called on the good people of the state to remain calm and security conscious as the state government was making efforts to secure the lives and property of the people.

He said the State Security Council tasked security agencies, traditional rulers and the general public to report for prosecution any person in the habit of collaborating and inviting the armed herders into the state.

Kula urged Benue people to remain calm as efforts were being put in place by the government to address the hardship and looming food insecurity across the nation.
