Benue attacks: What God will do to those killing us – Ujege

The President General of Mdzough U Tiv, Edward Ujege, has warned that
God will fight suspected Fulani herdsmen, who have been attacking and
killing people of the state.

Speaking exclusively with DAILY POST, Ujege said the God the Benue
people serve is "heavier" than "those with arms" and will rise up and
save them.

The elder statesman said this while disclosing how the killings
allegedly perpetrated by herdsmen can be stopped permanently.

According to the President General, dialogue between the herdsmen and
Benue people remains the only panacea to the persistent killings in
the state.

Ujege said, "We don't have arms and don't intend to have in Benue
State. I think our God is heavier than those with arms, we are telling
the government now that we have a God and he will fight for us. We
don't have AK-47, we don't have the money to buy them.

"Benue people don't have any means but to depend on God. We know that
we will be killed but not everybody. The few remaining and those
unborn will continue with this struggle until we find haven for

"Anything you do to an individual you need to dialogue. When this
issue started, the Miyetti Allah Kautal Hore threatened to mobilised
Fulani herdsmen all over the world to come and kill everybody in
Benue, that was the wrong thing to do.

"They should have thought of ways to ensure that the law benefits
everybody, this rule was not meant against anybody. The laws are made
so that farmers can continue to farm and those who have animals which
include our people can continue to do their animal business."
