Benue herdsmen attacks: Obasanjo reportedly backs Ortom on anti-open grazing law

Obasanjo allegedly advised Benue state governor, Samuel Ortom, not to give up on the anti-open grazing law, urging him to continue to work with people that have the state's and the nation’s interest at heart, the Independent reports. 

The former president insisted that Nigeria needed to get it right for it to move forward.

Obasanjo, who spoke at the graveside of the 73 persons that were massacred by suspected killer herdsmen on 1st January 2018, described the killings as “senseless”. 

Obasanjo, who stopped over in Makurdi briefly on Saturday, March 10, after the meeting of the Zero Hunger Forum that was held in Maiduguri, also laid a wreath at the tomb of the victims of the massacre. He said any responsive government needed to get to the root of the killings and put a permanent stop to it.
