In response to escalating security concerns, the Governor of Benue State, Rev. Fr. Hyacinth Alia, has taken decisive action by banning all political meetings and gatherings until further notice. This measure, conveyed through a statement by Paul Biam, the Chief of Staff to the governor, comes in light of intelligence reports indicating a precarious security situation within the state.

The statement, also addressed to the Benue State Police Commissioner, George Chuku, emphasizes the need for preventive measures given the presence of armed herders in the state. It states, "I write to inform you that Rev. Fr. Hyacinth Iormem Alia has banned all political gatherings in any form, be it inter or intra-party or groups in Benue State until further notice."

The governor's directive underscores the importance of strict enforcement, highlighting the urgency of the decision amid the volatile security atmosphere. With armed herders posing a significant threat to public safety, preemptive actions are deemed necessary to mitigate potential risks.

The influx of armed herders has heightened tensions within the state, necessitating proactive measures from authorities. As such, the statement calls upon recipients to uphold and enforce the governor's directive, ensuring compliance across political and social groups.

Overall, the ban on political gatherings reflects the government's commitment to maintaining peace and security in Benue State, prioritizing the welfare and safety of its residents above all else.
