Benue Killings: IG Of Police Vows To Apprehend Perpetrators

The Inspector-General of Police, Mr. Ibrahim Idris, has kicked against the clamour for military deployment to Benue state to tackle the recent spate of killings in the state by herdsmen, maintaining that the Nigeria Police Force is committed to apprehending and prosecuting the herdsmen who masterminded the New Year killings in Benue.

President Muhammadu Buhari on Tuesday ordered the I-G to move to Benue to restore law and order and forestall the crisis from escalating.

Herdsmen, on New Year day, attacked and killed 50 persons in Logo and Guma local government areas of the state.

Idris, who made the promise during stakeholders meeting in Makurdi, assured that anyone involved in the killings would be brought to book.

The police boss said the meeting was geared toward finding lasting solution to the crisis that bedevilled some communities of the state.

He said police would not rest until the perpetrators of the killings were arrested. He added that “I want to assure you that the police will not rest on its oars until these hoodlums are apprehended and brought to justice.

“We are conducting investigation into the killings and will take appropriate action against perpetrators of the heinous crime. “I want to assure you that police have put in place security measures to checkmate activities of miscreants.”

Idris also promised to take appropriate action against anyone carrying arms around. He enjoined the people to give the police actionable intelligence that would lead to further arrest of the herdsmen.

The I-G, who kicked against the clamour for deployment of the military, said they could only intervene when the police was overwhelmed. He said the force had deployed 660 personnel from some units to complement the security architecture in Benue.

He noted that the force was determined to create safe and secure.

  1. Story story... that's a lie from the pit of hell. I wonder why Benue people can't take action on this matter.

  2. That's a good one... Saw on FB Where gov fayose was dressed in full camouflage and was meeting with local hunters telling them to defend ekiti and his people from them, that he is not going to abuja to seek for help because abuja need help too

  3. Action they say speaks louder than voice

    Mc pinky

  4. Hmm mm no more killing biko..#igbochic

  5. When they ve not even killed anyone this deaf and dumb Buhari sent all kinds of military outfits to the east.
    Now when his people are killing and sucking blood , the only prowl he could send her weak ass naija police that will end up running away wit the masses when things become heated up

  6. IPOB you sent Military, NIGERDELTA you sent Military, BOKOHARAM you sent Military, but whenever it's Herdsmen you send Mumu Police, well done sir
