Benue State governor, Samuel Ortom has said he would use rue of law to ensure that any Fulani herder who establishes a vigilante group is jailed.

Fulani rights organization, Miyetti Allah Kautal Hore, had in July announced plans to form security outfits across the federation to curb insecurity.

Bello Bodejo, National President and Secretary of the organisation, while making the announcement said the vigilante group would assist security agencies curtail kidnapping, cattle rustling and banditry.

In his response, Ortom warned the Fulani group not to come to Benue State, saying the state has its own security architecture.

Ortom said, “No Fulani group will come to Benue State where I’m the governor; you people know that it is a lie, they cannot come. No room for vigilante group in whatever kind. When I confronted them, they said they would not use vigilante group of Nigeria. That one will not operate here.

“We have our own vigilante that operates here; we have community policing in which we are recruiting now and livestock guard that take care of herdsmen in active support with security men.

“So, no single vigilante group of Miyeitti Allah will come to Benue State to make any noise here. For us in Benue State, we believe in the rule of law and we will jail them.”
