• Yahaya identifies the cause of the crimes in Gombe
• CISLAC seeks legal framework to protect civilians in conflict areas

The governor of the state of Benue, Samuel Ortom, has called on the federal government to extend its attack on bandits in the northwest to the geopolitical region of North Central.

Ortom called Benue Peoples House in Makurdi yesterday when members of the Niger Delta Bishop’s Voice and Minister’s Forum (NDBVAMF) were visiting.

He said the raid on the bandit hideouts in Zamfara, one of the northwestern states, by security agents should be expanded to the north of Central to drive away the bandits so that peace can return to the region.

NOT less than 200 internally displaced persons ( IDPs) in Tse-Yandev Camp, Makurdi, have contracted malaria from mosquito bites.

As a result, inmates are constantly shouting for the attention of federal and state governments, even if they are living in barracks they are building n in the midst of inadequate food, medicine and basic supplies.

The camp chairman, Mr. Yev Gabriel, told journalists that most of the inmates were those from the border settlements of Yelwata and Kyianna in Nasarawa and State Benue and Guma and Taraba because of the attack by shepherds. Emmanuel Loman, has called the Plateau state government curfew a cosmetic product.
