Senator representing Benue North-east Senatorial District at the red chambers of the national assembly, senator Gabriel suswam who is, also the Senate committee chairman on power, has condemned in strong terms the recent attacks on Jootar town in Ukum local Government of Benue state which doubles as his immediate constituency.
The Senator while reacting to the incident said “I am really saddened by the fresh killings by “Jukun militia” at Jootar, a border town in Ukum Local Government Area that separates Benue and Taraba States”.
It is unfortunate that despite all previous and very concerted efforts to make peace by Benue State and relevant stakeholders on both sides, this unfortunate incidence has occurred again.
Irrespective of the current tension, I encourage everyone to remain calm as we continue to utilize options that direct to the path of peace.
The Senator who was a two time governor of Benue state from 2007 to 2015 further called on stakeholders to work together in support of government, state security agencies and the people.
“I sincerely send my sympathy to the victims of the attack and identify with you in this difficult time”
