Stop These Killings Now, Olusegun Obasanjo

Former President Chief Olusegun Obasanjo wants leaders in the country to do whatever that was necessary to end the circle of killings going on across the nation.

Chief Obasanjo made the call in Makurdi when he visited Governor Samuel Ortom to commiserate with him over the attacks on Benue communities in which several people have lost their lives.

The Former President who went to the grave side where seventy three persons were given mass burial to lay the wreath on their tombs said if the killings are allowed to go on, it might be difficult to attract foreign investment into the country.

Chief Obasanjo said he was particularly alarmed to learn that after the mass burial of the seventy three persons who were killed on New Year day, more than eighty others have been killed across the state.

The former president commended the doggedness of Governor Samuel Ortom in finding a solution to herdsmen killings and urged him not to relent in his efforts.
