GOVERNOR Samuel Ortom has urged President Buhari to declare herdsmen killing and destroying property in the state as terrorists.

Ortom, who made the call yesterday during the commissioning of the Government Science Secondary School in Gbajimba, Guma local government area of the state, also asked the federal government to recruit more security personnel and inject more funds into security agencies to motivate them to protect Nigerians.

He said: “I will not keep quiet and allow some group of people chase my people away from their homes and continue to make them Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs).

“Gbajimba has over 500,000 IDPs. I appeal to the Federal Government to stop these herdsmen and declare them a terrorist group.

“They should stop the killings and destruction of our property. I will not engage any militia group but I will continue to seek justice for my people.

“Security is a mandatory responsibility of every government. I want to appreciate the recent effort made by the government in nipping insecurity in the bud especially in the state but it should be sustained.

“I also, appreciate the effort of security agencies who are sacrificing their lives to ensure peace in our state. The Federal Government should do massive recruitment and ensure adequate funding of security agencies so that they can put in their best in securing the lives of Nigerians.”
