According to the governor, the situation has taken a different dimension as the militia exchanged fire with mobile policemen in Logo Local Government Area, killing two and leaving another injured.

President Muhammadu Buhari has ordered Inspector-General of Police Ibrahim Idris to move to Benue to restore law and order, prevent further loss of lives and forestall the crisis from escalating.

"There's no need to politicize this matter, it is the responsibility of all Nigerians, not just Mr President, or security agencies or governors but that of all Nigerians, and I think that's the right thing to do".

"He is aware that the police in Benue are already prosecuting some violators of this (anti-grazing) law and even those who were arrested after the 1st of January mayhem on our people... even today, two people who were arrested as a result of these killings were arraigned", Ortom added‎. It is hard to say (what makes the arrest difficult) since I am not a security agent and I am not a professional in that area, but I am told it is a process that will continue.

"MASSOB is therefore, calling on indigenes of Benue state to rise up and defend their God given land".

Earlier in November, almost 30 people were killed from a cattle herding community in a similar clash in the northeastern state of Adamawa.

"You know that continuity of this will create greater challenges for us and I don't want it to continue".
