The traditional ruler of Tiv, Begha U Tiv, Prof. James Ayatse, has laid curse on any Benue indigene colluding with killers in the state.
Ayatse made this comment during his funeral oration on Tuesday at the burial of the two priests and other worshippers killed by Fulani herdsmen in Mbalom, Gwer East, LGA, Benue State last month.
According to the royal father, “There will be a curse on any Benue son or daughter colluding with our enemies to take over our land and kill our people. Such a person will be sucked by Benue soil.
“Benue sons and daughters irrespective of party or religious affiliations, must unite and defend their land from been taken away by the enemies. It is not only my duty. It is not only the duty of the Governor but a collective duty.”
