Benue Gov, Alia, deputy storm bush to challenge Fulani herdsmen



Governor Hyacinth Iormem Alia of Benue State has personally led efforts to combat the persistent threat posed by killer herdsmen in the region.

Accompanied by his Deputy, Barrister Sam Ode, security personnel, and government officials, Governor Alia ventured into the heart of the bush on Wednesday, February 21, 2024, to confront the challenges posed by Fulani herdsmen.

This proactive approach marks a historic moment in the state’s history, with Governor Alia defying conventional responses to insecurity by directly engaging with the situation on the ground.

Unlike previous administrations, which often resorted to televised pleas for assistance while allegedly misappropriating security funds, Governor Alia’s hands-on leadership style has earned him the moniker of ‘a Governor with a difference’.
