Benue State Governor, Hyacinth Alia has directed security agencies in the state to ensure the rescue of the family of the former aide to former governor, Samuel Ortom.

Alia condemned in strong terms the unfortunate incident, saying, “I am shocked and dismayed by this barbaric act. 

The governor gave the directive in a statement signed by his Chief Press Secretary, Tersoo Kula, on Sunday in Makurdi, after a briefing on the attack on Terwase Orbunde which occurred during the weekend.

He charged that, the criminal elements disrupting the peace of the state are fished out and brought to justice.

He stated that, he is ready and willing to continue to provide the necessary support needed by the security agencies to ensure the state is cleaned from nefarious activities.


“I have said this, and I must keep saying it. Security should, and must be everyone's concern. 

"The law enforcement agencies and the government need information. Make it a culture that anytime you see something, you say something.“

He pointed out that while insecurity has become a global issue and is not perculiar to Benue alone, he will continue working round the clock to secure every life and property in the state.

He assured all Benue residents that security is a top priority in his administration, and that matters of insecurity will soon be a thing of the past.
