The Benue State Governor, Samuel Ortom has declared Tuesday, May 22, work free day to honour the two catholic priests who were recently killed with 17 worshippers in Mbalom, Gwer East Local Government Area of the state.

The two catholic priests and 17 worshippers were slaughtered by armed Fulani herdsmen at St. Ignatius’ Catholic Church, Ayar, Gwer.

The killings caused outrage throughout the country and forced President Muhammadu Buhari to deploy soldiers to the state to stop the killings.

Meanwhile, Vice president Yemi Osinbajo has arrived Makurdi, Benue State capital for a two-day working visit.

The Vice President is in Benue State to access the state which has been faced with a humanitarian crisis which is a sequel to incessant attacks that has resulted in the killings of many.

Osinbajo is expected to visit the Abagana Internally Displaced Persons (IDP) camp.
