Benue State Governor, Samuel Ortom has claimed that Community Volunteer Guards, also known as Benue state security Outfit will soon be carrying AK- 47s, AK- 49s, and other advanced weaponry to protect the state.

This comes as a promise made by the Governor of Benue State on Thursday while alleging that he making arrangements to buy sophisticated firearms for the Community Volunteer Guards.

Ortom further stated that 500 people were recruited in the first batch from each of the 23 local government areas in the state.

The recruits were presented to the public during the passing out ceremony that took place at IBB Square in Makurdi.

According to the governor, his administration decided to form the security outfit because of the failure of the federal government to disarm the Fulani terrorising the state.

Ortom said, ” Benue State has been especially targeted because of the historic episode of 1804, but also because my administration’ s insistence on the Rule of Law rather than the rule of terror and for always standing with my people in their refusal to surrender their land, identity and Judeo- Christian faith and values to the Islamization agenda.

” Given the fact that the Federal Government has consistently failed to disarm the Fulani terrorists who have continued to maim and kill our people at will, the State Government is going to apply for a License to legally procure AK47, AK49 and other sophisticated weapons for the Benue State Volunteers Guards to enable them to tackle these murderous terrorists effectively.
