Benue killings: Lalong was quoted out of context -group says

Buhari failed the good people of Benue

The bodies were driven round Makurdi metropolis in a motorcade in five trailers and six ambulances to the square for a funeral mass which started about noon and ended at 3:30p.m., while interment took place about 4:15p.m. The federal government has proposed establishing a grazing colony for the herdsmen to solve the crisis, but people in Benue have rejected the idea.

Some of the residents also expressed worries over the incessant attacks on farmers in the state and said that the acts were unhealthy for an agrarian state like Benue.

The massacre which left over 50,000 displaced in Benue and another 18,000 people displaced in Nasarawa State has drawn widespread criticisms with various people sharing diverse reactions.

It said that several persons operating as Civilian JTF in Benue states arrested by the military have confessed that they are answerable to the governor and some of his senior officials.

With the day being labeled as a "Black Thursday" for the people of Benue state, many have cried out to the government to seek justice for the deceased.
