Benue Killings: If FG Can’t Protect Us In A Space Of Two Weeks, We’ll Raise Our Own Army – Paul Unongo



The Chairman of the Northern Elders Forum and the spiritual leader of the Tiv nation, Paul Iorpuu Unongo, yesterday January 11th has said if President Muhammadu Buhari fails in his responsibility to protect lives and property of Benue State citizens in two weeks, the people would train their own army in the state to defend themselves.

Unongo said this on Thursday during the mass burial of 73 persons killed by Fulani herdsmen in Benue State.

He said: “Benue people sacrificed blood for the unity of this country and will not allow a section of Fulani herdsmen to kill our people in cold blood.

“I am telling Nigerians that my people cannot continue to be cannon fodder for this country.

“If the government can’t protect us, we will mobilise and train our people into an army to defend us.

“We are 100 per cent in support of what Governor Samuel Ortom has done.

“I am the spiritual and ancestral leader of the Tiv nation.

“Enough is enough.

“If the Federal Government cannot stop or arrest those behind the killings, in two weeks, we shall raise an army of our own.

“We cannot allow people to colonise us again.

“We have all it takes to do that.”
