NIGERIA MILITARY CLAIMS KILLER HERDSMEN ARE SPONSORED

The Defence Headquarters, Abuja, has said that the fresh rounds of killings in Benue State were being sponsored.

It added that the military would, however, soon apprehend both the killer herdsmen and their sponsors.

The Director, Defence Information, Brigadier General John Agim, who stated this, insisted that the military would not support any side in the violence that had been going on in Benue State.

He also said the military had been recovering guns and other weapons from herdsmen and locals in several areas of Benue and Taraba states, adding that the military would not take sides.
