British High Commissioner with Governor Sule and other officials

Governor Abdullahi Sule of Nasarawa State has vowed to fish out the killer fulani herdsman who murdered Tiv farmers recently at Awe and Obi local government area of the state.

Governor Sule made the promise during a meeting held on Monday with security chiefs, traditional rulers as well as Tiv and Fulani community leaders in Obi Local Government Area of the state.

The meeting was in response and part of sustained efforts to curtail the violence that erupted in parts of Obi, Lafia and Awe LGAs at the weekend.

He said, “There was needless loss of lives of our citizens. Such act of violence is most unfortunate, condemnable, unacceptable and will not be condoned by this administration.

“I am admonishing you all to live in peace with one another and to shun mischief makers looking for opportunities to cause mayhem”.

He charged community leaders in the area to avoid making spurious claims, saying that such claims creates wrong impression within and outside the state.

As to the accurate figures of those killed, the Governor said security operatives involved in restoring peace in the affected areas are the most appropriate to ascertain the figures.

“As an administration, we will do everything possible to get to the bottom of this and forestall any future security breach.

“Relief materials will be sent to displaced persons and government will work with all stakeholders to ensure that they return to their communities and businesses as soon as possible”, he added.
