President Muhammadu Buhari will, on Monday, meet Governor Samuel Ortom of Benue as part of efforts aimed at finding lasting solutions to the alleged killings by herdsmen in the state.

Aside the governor, all political, traditional and opinion leaders from the state are expected to be at the meeting as well as security chiefs on the side of the federal government.

According to a source in the State House, Abuja, the meeting will table comprehensive solutions to the security problems and will not leave out the issue of militias said to be armed by the state government.

Over 70 victims of the recent killings in parts of the state were buried in Makurdi on Thursday.
