President Muhammadu Buhari has ordered an investigation into the clashes between herdsmen and indigenes of communities in Benue State.

The order was contained in a statement made available to journalists by the Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu.

Shehu said the President expressed deep shock at the latest incident that happened during the past week, which led to hundreds of deaths in four communities in Agatu Local Government Area of the state.


He quoted Buhari as ordering security agencies to get to the root of the problem.

“We will conduct an investigation to know exactly what happened; the only way to bring an end to the violence once and for all is to look beyond one incident and ascertain exactly what factors are behind the conflicts,” the President was quoted as saying.

The President further expressed condolences to the government and people of Benue State, particularly the people of the Agatu communities, assuring them that the government would do everything possible to ensure that no such incident ever occurred in their midst again.
