Senator Suleiman Adokwe, representing Nasarawa South, has cried out that his senatorial district is plagued by Fulani militia.

Senator Adokwe stated that over 20 people have been killed with several others still missing, as herdsmen have declared war on his people.

He said, “In the last one one week, the attacks have intensified and persisted. A lot of lives have been lost. At the last count, we know that not less than 20 people have died and we are still counting  because there are still people in the bush.

“I am not trying to be sensational, but bringing the graphic truth to the Nigerian public to know that the misery is rising on a daily basis.

He added that “In most cases you will find that we are playing the Ostrich; this thing is from Benue State, it is not here. But people are dying. I have also exposed the fact that our common fate between Benue, Nasarawa, Taraba and Plateau States is one because we used to be Benue-Plateau State.

“That is what we are today. All of Wukari division was in Benue-Plateau State. So what affects Benue State affects Nasarawa, Plateau and Taraba States.”

He raised the alarm while addressing journalists, over the weekend, while visiting Internally Deplaced Persons (IDPs) camps in his senatorial district, where over 30,000 people have been displaced in fresh attacks.

The legislator also lamented “the high level of politics being played with human lives by some leaders in the state.”

Hence the senator appealed to President Muhammadu Buhari saying: The sooner the government keeps it words that it will send  military experts to come around and crush this thing once and for all, the better for everybody.”

He stated that Tiv settlements in the five local government area comprising his constituency have been displaced.
