Governor Samuel Ortom has vowed to seek justice for the fallen indigenes of Benue State who were killed by suspected herdsmen.
He made the vow on Thursday during a mass burial organised by his administration in the state capital, Makurdi.
In an emotion-laden voice, the governor told hundreds of mourners at the IBB Square where a memorial service was held for the victims that the best way to honour them was to fully implement the Open-Grazing Prohibition law.
The mass burial ceremony attracted members of the National Working Committee of the All Progressive Congress, members of the National Assembly and the United Nations representative in commiseration with the people of Benue state.
Meanwhile, the United Nations has urged the Federal Government to go beyond condemning the attacks and find a lasting solution to the crisis.
Also, a human right lawyer, Professor Agbo Madaki, plans to sue the Federal Government in connection with the killings.
Madaki will file charges bordering on war crimes against the Federal Government if it fails to arrest the perpetrators of the attacks.
According to him, the attacks could have been avoided because security agencies were informed of the planned attacks by suspected herdsmen before they struck.
