Over one million cows invaded Benue — despite ongoing army operation | Nigerian News. Latest Nigeria News. Your online Nigerian Newspaper. f

Samuel Ortom, governor of Benue state, says despite the presence of the military in Benue, “over one million” cows have flooded the state.



Ortom said this on Monday when he led Paul Enenche, senior pastor of Dunamis International Gospel Centre, to the cemetery of the 73 persons killed in the state in January.

The military recently launched Ayem Akpatuma exercise in seven states, including Benue, to tackle the clashes between farmers and herdsmen.

Hundreds of troops were deployed in the state when the exercise was launched last week.

“We appreciate president Buhari for the deployment of soldiers to keep the peace,” Ortom said.

“But our concern is the influx of over one million cows into the state despite the presence of the military.”

The governor added that at least 60 persons have been killed in the state since the mass burial of the 73 persons.

He appealed to the military to flush out the invaders so that the over 160,000 displaced people camps could return to their homes.
