Benue State Governor, Hyacinth Iormem Alia, condemned in strong terms the unfortunate incident, saying, ‘I am shocked and dismayed by this barbaric act.’

‘I have said this, and I must keep saying it. Security should, and must be everyone’s concern. The law enforcement agencies and the government need information. Make it a culture that anytime you see something, you say something’

He assured all Benue residents that security is a top priority in his administration, and that matters of insecurity will soon be a thing of the past.
