Residents in Makurdi have trooped out in their thousands to protest against the January 2, herdsmen’s attack on farmers in which 20 people were killed.
The protesters are calling on the presidency to bring the culprits to book. The protesters carried placards with inscriptions such as “Presidential Intervention needed”, “Why value cows to Humans”, and “Stop this incessant blood bath”. Some of them chanted, “We will not vote for the present administration again both the State and Federal level if this crises don’t stop”. The protests involved mostly youths who barricaded major roads leading in and out of Makurdi, the state capital.
