Some Benue state indigenes have taken their search for justice for victims of herdsmen killings to the National Assembly.

The protesters demanded that both the Senate and the House of Representatives speed up their investigations, and ensure that all those behind the killings face the law.

Addressing protesters, Deputy Minority leader of the House of Representatives, Hon Chukwuka Onyema, gave assurance of the government to address the situation once and for all.

He said: “We have set up a panel, the panel is going to come back to us and tell us their findings.

I don’t think anyone in his right senses will sit down and allow this kind of thing (the killings) to happen.

“We have called on security agencies and we are going to do our best. You will hear of our resolutions and when we come up with our resolution, I think the whole of Benue will be proud of us.”
