Benue killings: Senator Ibrahim reveals likely attackers

Benue killings: Senator Ibrahim reveals likely attackers

The senator representing Katsina South Senatorial district, Senator Abu Ibrahim has given a hint on those responsible for herdsmen attack on communities in Benue and Taraba states.

The Chairman of the Senate Committee on Police Affairs, speaking with newsmen on Thursday said Boko Haram insurgents or Libyan soldiers could be responsible for the attacks.

He noted that Fulani herdsmen are not able to handle sophisticated weapons used in executing attacks, thereby calling for thorough investigation.

“We have to seriously investigate this. A normal Fulani man is not known to carry AK47. The security agencies should probe whether the defeated Boko Haram insurgents were involved; whether the Gaddafi phenomenon has spilled over to Nigeria.

“It should be considered whether displaced Libyan soldiers had a hand in what happened because it is not easy to acquire AK47,” he said.

The lawmaker further called for suspension of hate speeches against President Muhammadu Buhari.

Reacting to insinuations that the president was showing no concern to the killings, he said, “It is not true because the president has taken steps to bring the situation under control. He has deployed soldiers to Benue State, he ordered the Inspector General of Police to relocate to Benue. He has taken other measures that may not be for public consumption.

“It is therefore wrong for anybody to say that the president is not interested in what happened in the state. When the president saw that the police effort was not bringing effective result, he promptly deployed soldiers,” he added.
