President Muhammadu Buhari, on Monday, expressed surprise at the news of the Inspector General of Police, Ibrahim Idris's refusal to stay in Benue until the farmer/herdsmen clashes in the state finally ends. President Buhari stated this at a town hall meeting with stakeholders in Markurdi, the capital city of Benue State. However, he said the meeting was not the best place to expose the failure of his appointees and appealed to the people to live in peace and harmony.
Earlier in February, many media outlets reported that, despite the President's order to relocate to Benue State, the Inspector General of Police spent less than 24 hours in the state before proceeding to neighbouring Nasarawa State. The President however expressed shock and sadness at the spate of killings going on around the country and promised that his administration will put an end to it. He denied insinuations that he was not concerned with the spate of killings in the state or any other state in the country.
The President is in Benue State as part of his on-the-spot assessment of areas affected by several attacks and killings in the country.
