Why we banned political gatherings – Benue govt

The Benue State Government has stated reasons it banned political gatherings and meetings in the state.

It said the insecurity in the state made Governor Hyacinth Alia to take the measure.

The state government said the ban covers all forms of intra-party and inter-group meetings in the north-central state till further notice.

This was revealed by the governor’s Chief of Staff, Paul Biam, adding that the ban became necessary because of the volatility of the security atmosphere in Benue.

He lamented that the security atmosphere became charged, following what he described as the unprecedented influx of armed herdsmen into the state.

The Chief of Staff in his letter to the state Commissioner of Police, urged him to enforce the directive on the ban.
