Ekiti State Governor, Mr Ayodele Fayose, on Thursday visited Benue State in a show of solidarity to the Governor and people of the state over the killings in the state.

Fayose, who was received by Governor Samuel Ortom, declared support for the Anti-Grazing Law implemented by the state government in 2017, warning that it must not be compromised.

The Ekiti Governor said there was a federal conspiracy against the law and criticized the Federal Government and security agencies for poorly handling threats to the state prior to the New Year’s Day attack which left 73 indigenes of the state dead.

Fayose is the second governor to visit Benue in two days. On Wednesday, the Governor of Rivers State, Mr Nyesom Wike, visited Benue and donated N200m to the state government.
