 The aggrieved youths who wield posters are calling on President Muhammadu Buhari to “act now or resign.” The protest has led to a heavy gridlock in the area, causing traffic obstruction for motorists travelling through the axis to the north and southern regions of the country. Recall that the State Governor, Samuel Ortom had confirmed that at least 20 people were killed after suspected Fulani herdsmen attacked communities in Guma and Logo local government areas of the state between Monday and Tuesday, last week. Ortom disclosed this while briefing newsmen on Tuesday in Makurdi after the State security meeting.
