Gov Ortom to meet Buhari over planned withdrawal of military operation

Following speculations that Operation Whirl Stroke (OPWS) may be withdrawn from Benue State as peace has been restored in the state, Governor Samuel Ortom wants to meet President Muhammadu Buhari in Abuja.

Ortom dropped the hint in Aondona, Gwer West Council at a thanksgiving service for a new Catholic priest, Fr. Cornelius Anagbe, younger brother to Bishop Wilfred Anagbe of the Catholic Diocese of Makurdi.

The governor noted that though the military operation brought relative peace in parts of the state, there were still pockets of security threats that need to be fully addressed with time, expressing the hope that the president would see reason and heed to his appeal.

He commended the officers and men of OPWS for their selfless service, commitment, and professionalism, which yielded results in the fight against insecurity in Benue.

Governor Ortom expressed the readiness of his administration to continue supporting security agencies operating in the state to succeed.

According him, the state’s Open Grazing Prohibition and Ranches Establishment Law remains in force and must be obeyed by all, irrespective of where they are coming from, as those who violate the legislation will be sanctioned according to its provisions.
