YEN President Condemns Herdsmen Attacks in Benue, Condoles with Benue People

The National President of the Young Entrepreneurs of Nigeria, Comrade Chris Kohol has condemned in strong terms, the recent herdsmen killings in Benue state, saying the attack "threatens the unity and corporate existence of our dear country"
In a statement release to the press, Kohol also condoled with the people of Benue State and families who lost loved ones in the unfortunate episode.
Recall that those suspected to be cattle herders invaded Guma and Logo Local Governments of Benue state on the 1st and 2nd of this month, and killed 72 people.
Here is the release below.
Today I write with a heavy heart and deep sense of grief to condemn in totality the incessant barbaric killings and continues onslaught unleashed on the peace loving people of Benue State by suspected Fulani herdsmen and as well commiserate with the H.E Dr. Samuel Ortom and His Royal Highness Orcivirigh Prof. James Iorzua Ayatse (Tor-Tiv V & Chairman Benue Traditional Council) and especially to the individual families who are victims and bereaved of this excruciating menacing evil.
It is important to note that these sustained attacks are a misfortune to the growth of the nation, threatening the unity and corporate existence of our dear country Nigeria and if not curtailed and contained, are capable of thwarting the economic fortunes of our lands, propelling to food insecurity and impeding on the sustainability and growth of both commercial and business activities.
Long live Benue State!
It is my sincere and humble appeal that our President His Excellency, Muhammadu Buhari GCFR and government at all levels should arise, be proactive and join hands with relevant stakeholders, spirited individuals and groups to combat these senseless and gruesome killings that has infiltrated our lands so as to restore normalcy and peace in Benue, Taraba, Adamawa, Ekiti, Kaduna States and every troubled parts of our dear country Nigeria facing these Fulani herdsmen attacks
Long live Federal Republic of Nigeria!!
Long live Young Entrepreneurs of Nigeria (YEN)!!!
Yours in Service
National President
Young Entrepreneurs of Nigeria (YEN)
