Fayose said this while reacting to Buhari's comment on Monday that he was not aware Ibrahim Idris, inspector-general of police, disobeyed his orders.

He said the sending of two delegations to assess the extent of damage caused in the state as a result of herdsmen and farmers' conflict ahead of the President's visit was a sign of hope that the IDPs would return to their homes soon. The police boss had reportedly spent less than 24 hours in the state before leaving; attracting more condemnation from Nigerians even as the presidency failed to reprimand him.

He also appealed to leaders of various groups in the state to convince their constituents that the federal government is doing its best to end the recurring attacks by armed herdsmen in various parts of the country.

The President also assured the people of Benue that he can not overlook the killings in Benue or any other part of Nigeria.

It was gathered that the slain policemen were part of the security operatives deployed in troubled communities in the state. I can not do that.

"The governor and I, and others here know that we will leave one day, but the relationship between farmers and herders will continue".

He denied insinuations that he overlooked the killings that happened in Benue, saying he is genuinely anxious over them.

It is, however, not clear if the birthday get-together took place in Abuja or Nasarawa.

Obasanjo made the call on Saturday when he laid wreath at the grave site of 73 victims of herdsmen attack in Makurdi, Benue State.

Some protesting youths, who had stormed the venue to register their grievances over incessant killings in the state, were sent away by security men, while their placards were seized.

He further faulted claims that the President's visit to the state is politically motivated, saying his principal was engaging in more of acting than talking to stop the killings.
