Ortom warns Benue State Residents to shun Lawlessness

Benue State Governor, Samuel Ortom, has warned residents in the state to desist from activities that can lead to the breakdown of law and order in the state.

The governor gave the warning in a statement over the weekend by his Chief Press Secretary, Mr Terver Akase.

He noted that the people of the state are peace-loving and not at war with anyone and condemned the attacks on passengers by hoodlums on Saturday near Yelwata, along Lafia-Makurdi Highway.

Governor Ortom, however, commended the police in the state for swiftly arresting some of the suspects for prosecution.

He further urged them and other security agencies to continue with the investigation in order to apprehend all those found culpable.

The governor called on residents to provide useful information to assist the security agencies to arrest the culprits.

He also commiserated with families of the victims and prayed that God consoles them while appealing to the people to restrain themselves from all lawless acts.
